Contributions and Charges

Under the School Education Act 1999 we are required to report the financial processes of our school to the community. This involves outlining proposed contributions and charges for the coming school year two months prior to the commencement of the following year. There are two payments to be made, contributions plus charges.


The Department of Education Contributions, Charges and Fee Policy (September 2001) has set the maximum contribution by parents at $60.00 per child from Kindergarten to Year 6. The Goollelal Primary School Board has approved the voluntary contribution for 2019 as $60.00 per child.


Parents are asked to pay the full amount below up front. If this is not possible please contact Marion, our Manager of Corporate Services at or 6207 2100 for alternative options. Please note that this amount does not include expected charges for the personal items list and charges for school photos. PEAC (Primary Extension and Challenge) and SIMS (School of Instrumental Music) eligible students will be invoiced individually. The money needs to be paid online via direct credit to the Goollelal Primary School Account or placed in an envelope, clearly labelled with your child’s name and handed in at Administration. Please confirm any online direct credits to the school account by emailing Marion. For a detailed breakdown of charges, including personal items and school photos, please see our Community Information Book 2020.
