Financial contributions and assistance

There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for.

These include:


Voluntary school contributions

Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.

For more information, visit the Voluntary School Contribution policy.

Here at North Gosford Learning Centre we try to keep costs to parents minimal.

We ask parents for a voluntary school contribution of $60 per year.

Using this money the school supplies all books and equipment for day to day activities.

Uniform shirts, shorts and jumpers are available at a subsidised cost of $15 each. A range of sizes are kept on hand, however there may be a delay in supply of some sizes at certain times of the year.

Subject contributions

We may ask you for financial contributions to cover the costs of materials used by your child in elective subjects that go beyond the minimum requirements of the curriculum. Individual arrangements can be made confidentially if you cannot pay these costs.

Financial assistance

If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.

Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
