Fairfield Primary School would like to advise our families of the voluntary financial contributions for 2022.
The Department of Education and Training has made changes to its Parent Payment Policy.
The ‘Parent Fees’ category has been replaced by ‘Curriculum Contributions’.
- These payments will be spent by the school in the same way as previous, including for classroom consumables and the specialist subjects.
The ‘Voluntary Contributions’ category has been replaced by ‘Other Contributions’.
- These contributions will continue to go towards the Library Fund, Building Fund, Librarian Contribution and Nurse Contribution.
The ‘Excursion Levy’ and ‘Sports Levy’ has been replaced by ‘Extra-Curricular Items and Activities’.
- In 2022, FPS will be charging families per excursion/incursion rather than a one-off fee.
Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary. Nevertheless, the ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students.
