Each year parents are asked to provide resources for their child/children in two ways.
1. The Book List and
2. The Student Resource Scheme.
Our Student Resource Scheme will operate again during 2020 offering parents who elect to participate in the scheme, an economical alternative to the purchase of learning resources for their child throughout the school year.
The scheme is supported by the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) and managed by the school and operates within the policy and guidelines of the Department of Education (DoE) and in accordance with section 51 of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006. DoE encourages schools to operate a scheme as a service to parents.
Participation in the scheme is voluntary and those parents/carers who join the scheme pay a fee in return for their child's access to materials and resources managed by the scheme. Parents/carers who do not wish to participate in the scheme are responsible for providing their child with all the items that would otherwise be provided to the student by the scheme as detailed in the Year Level Requirements List.
Under the scheme, books and resource materials are purchased in advance to secure discounts through bulk buying and to ensure students have the resources to start the year/term.
The P&C discusses and approves the Student Resource Scheme at the P&C meeting in September of each year.
The provision of this scheme ensures that well resourced learning by our students remains our key focus. The ongoing provision of high quality resources to ensure student outcomes are maximised is an annual budgeting challenge. This scheme creates an opportunity for every family to support the learning of their children in the most economical fashion.
I look forward to your support to ensure every student starts Day One in 2020 prepared and resourced for the academic challenges of the new year.
