Bicton Primary School promotes a respectful, nurturing, and supportive environment.

Contribution and Charges

Please see the schedule of contributions and charges for 2021. This will allow you to calculate all costs that may be incurred throughout the school year.

Early in 2021 you will receive a statement, which will include amounts for the school voluntary contribution and approved request.

We are again offering the opportunity to pre-pay your school contributions and charges. This will save you the time and burden of providing separate amounts of money throughout the year. Further information will be sent to you at the commencement of Term 1, 2021.

The contribution parents/caregivers are being asked to pay in 2021 has been set at $60.00 per student, which does not exceed the limit set by the School Education Regulations 2000. The voluntary contribution per child ($60.00) equates to the minimal amount of $1.50 per week, over the course of the school year.

Whilst the contribution is voluntary, the quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family makes its contribution to supplementing our school funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth governments. Voluntary contributions assist with the cost of materials, services and facilities used by all students in these educational programs: Technologies, Library, HASS, Science, English, Maths, and Arts.

Voluntary contributions are used for the direct benefit of all our students, therefore our goal is to raise our community’s contribution rate to 100%; the school and Board thank you in advance for your continued support.

A breakdown of estimated charges for your child’s participation in excursions, incursions and other activities for 2021 has been included in the attached table. Historical detail on charges collected in previous years, has been considered when determining our 2021 charges schedule.

Important Notes (Please read)

  • Charges for extra cost optional components must be paid prior to the planned activity. If personal circumstances result in payment difficulties, please contact the Manager Corporate Services on (08) 9205 5800 to make alternative arrangements.
  • Charges for extra cost optional components vary from year to year and also between year levels, depending on the nature and range of activities being offered. The amounts indicated in the table represent the maximum cost of scheduled activities during 2021.
  • Charges for extra cost optional components only relate to students who participate in individual optional items and are payable directly to Bicton Primary School. Not all students in each year level participate in all of the itemised activities, e.g. Interschool sporting teams, Instrumental Music School Services (SIM), PEAC etc.
  • Any unused credit that has been rolled over from 2020 (as per the balance on your statement) can be applied to 2021 charges.
  • Statements will be provided throughout the year, and also upon request.

The Bicton Primary School P&C Association voluntary additional request will be $50.00 per family to assist with learning technologies and devices for student use. In 2021 we will again direct these funds to integration of digital technologies into the curriculum.
