Financial contributions and assistance

Westmead PS general school contribution

General school contribution (fees) are sent home each year. Equipment such as exercise books, art supplies, sports equipment and classroom resources is purchased from these contributions. Should you wish to discuss difficulties including exemptions, please contact the Principal, Deputy Principal or Assistant Principal.

The school also requests that you pay a paper levy, a contribution towards classroom reading books and technology. 

There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for.

These include:

  • uniforms

  • school books and equipment

  • excursions

  • 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.

Financial assistance

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.
