Whilst the cost of providing instruction, administration and facilities for the education of a student at a state school is met by the State, a parent is directly responsible for providing the student with textbooks and other resources for a student's use while attending school.
As a service to assist parents with the cost of these educational resources, Keebra Park State High School has chosen to operate a Student Resource Scheme (the Scheme). The purpose of the Scheme is to provide parents with a cost effective alternative to purchasing textbooks, resources, consumables and/or materials from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the school's bulk purchasing processes.
A Student Resource Scheme enables a parent to enter into written agreement with the School that, in return for payment of a specified annual participation fee, provides for the participating student's temporary use of prescribed textbooks and other resources and/or for the purchase by the parent of consumables and materials for the student's use. Participation in the Scheme is voluntary, and no obligation is placed on a parent to participate. A parent's decision to participate is based on consideration of the value afforded by the Scheme. The Keebra Park State High School Scheme provides excellent value for money. A comprehensive list of what the Student Resource Scheme participation fee provides for your child is provided in this application form.
A parent who does not wish to join the Scheme is responsible for providing the student with the items on this list that would otherwise have been provided to the student by the Scheme to enable the student to engage with the curriculum.
User pays fees
Schools are able to charge fees for educational services, including materials and consumables, not defined as instruction, administration and facilities.
User Pays fees are charged for subjects where the instruction is extended through providing practical learning experiences in excess of materials provided by school grants. Subjects which attract fees are clearly outlined in each of the subject area sections in the Subject Selection information available on the School website (a paper copy may be requested if you do not have access to the internet).
Anyone experiencing financial difficulty at this time and wishing to pay the Student Resource Scheme over an extended period of time are asked to phone the School on (07) 5509 2555 and arrange a time to speak to our Business Services Manager.
