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

Contribution and Charges

Below is the approved schedule of contributions and charges for 2024. This outlines the maximum costs that may be incurred throughout the coming school year.

Contributions + Charges 2024

The contribution parents/caregivers are being asked to pay in 2024 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.  Voluntary contributions are used for the direct benefit of all students, and assist with the cost of materials, services and facilities used in our educational programs.

A breakdown of estimated charges for your child’s participation in excursions, incursions and other activities for 2024 has been included in the attached table.

Important Notes
