Voluntary school contributions
Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.
At Beecroft Public School, accounts are issued each semester. The Semester 1 account contains annual levies and costs for Terms 1 & 2 and is distributed during Term 1.
The Semester 2 account covers costs for Terms 3 & 4 and is distributed during Term 3. Information about the annual levies and our Parents & Citizens Association voluntary contribution is distributed along with the semester accounts.
During September 2017, Beecroft Public School moved to a new system, school bytes, for distributing our semester accounts.
A statement of account containing amounts due for payment will be emailed to each family. The email contains a link to the Westpac parent online payment system and generates all of the required student information for Westpac (except for the payer details) making payment of the account, quick, paperless and straightforward. Our preferred payment method is through the on-line payment system. Cash (correct amount please) can also be placed in a sealed envelope, with your child's name and class clearly marked on the front, and a copy of the statement of account included and left in the payment box outside the front office.
If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.
Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
