There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for.
Costs to consider include:
school books and equipment
- co-curricular activities.
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.
For more information, visit the Voluntary School Contribution policy.
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.
Student Assistance Scheme
The government has introduced a scheme to assist families in need of help with the cost of secondary education. Kelso High Campus has received an allowance to assist eligible families with the cost of educating their children. The school will disperse the assistance in response to specific requests from families. A parent or guardian requiring assistance to cover such things as school uniform, textbooks, school excursions and stationery needs, should contact the co-ordinator through the front office.
