Schooling Costs

Activity Statements

Each term Leichhardt Public School will issue an Activity Statement that outlines the cost of special events and programs for that term. This statement is accompanied by a consent form for each activity. This form is signed and returned with the payment.

This payment also includes provision for payment of a voluntary school contribution which is an important source of income for the school. The contribution is $100 per student or two installments of $50.

Payments can be made by cash, cheque (payable to Leichhardt Public School)  EFTPOS or online.

Note: Throughout the year we may be offered opportunities to participate in other programs or activities that are yet to be planned. If these activities occur after the Activity Statement has been issued for the term, they will be included on the next term’s activity statement.

Should parents need support in making payments they should contact the Principal. We can assure parents and guardians that all requests for support will remain confidential.

Annual School Contributions

The school has a voluntary school contribution scheme. The money raised from this scheme helps the school purchase those extra resources it wouldn’t normally be able to have – it may be used to update IT hardware, or to buy sports equipment or library books. The contribution is set at $80 per child per year.

The school greatly appreciates your support in paying this contribution.

Other Payments

Other payments may include ‘one off’ events such as school camp, school picnic and ICAS competitions.

Make Online Payments

It is now possible for parents to make online payments to the school for amounts owing for students, via a secure payment page hosted by Westpac. Payments can be made using either a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card. Items that can be paid include activity statements, school camps and sports events. Go to the Pay Online page for more information.
