Contributions and Charges

The Government provides a comprehensive education that satisfies the requirements of the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline for all students throughout Western Australia.

A substantial portion of the operating costs associated with the education of students is from State and Commonwealth Governments. These funds go towards salaries of teaching and administrative staff, school buildings and facilities, equipment and course materials. Fundraising, sponsorships and donations from parents and school communities also supplement the funds required to fund the operation of a school.

This information is provided to explain the different types of expenditure parents might incur during the 2024 school year.
