Fees and donations
All school donations are tax deductible
The Board of Trustees at Queen Elizabeth College have an ongoing commitment to ensure quality education programmes and resources are available for all students.
The donation amount for 2019 is:
1 child $150 per year
2 children $250 per year
3+ children $300 per year
These donations will help the school run extra programmes and includes the purchase of additional resources such as audio-visual equipment, digital resources, musical equipment, sporting equipment and extra classroom support.
You can set up an automatic payment which can be weekly or fortnightly and all donations/ fees can be paid off over the full year with no administration or interest charges.
Course fees/ donations
Some courses are expensive to run like Woodwork, Cooking and Art. Courses such as these will have a flat fee of $50 per year which contributes to the cost of the course. Music tuition for private lessons also has a fee of $50, the lessons are held at school through the music department.
Year 9 & 10 camps are highly recommended but are not compulsory. The year 9 camp is held at the start of the year in term one. The year 10 camp is in term four. Camps give the students physical and mental challenges in a new environment, it is an opportunity for significant growth and builds on the opportunity for exploration of local bush and rivers. The cost of camp is approximately $200.
Sports and cultural activities
The cost of fees associated with entry to competitions and the cost of equipment provided for the sport is charged to parents. We do our best to keep the fees as low as possible. If your child wants to participated, you will be expected to pay the fees.
There are on occasion class trips for the enhancement of the curriculum. Teachers will send a note home if this is the case. At times there will be charges for transport or other associated costs.
Support with the costs of schooling your child
We offer several support mechanisms for you to meet the costs associated with your time at school with us.
Each year the school will run a sponsored fundraiser for your child. In 2019 this is a 10K sponsored walk/run. All funds raised from this event will be credited in the school account to your child for fees and costs associated directly to their schooling.
We also offer a “car wash” for sports fees. This runs every Saturday morning at Courtesy Ford and the money raised is also credited to your child’s account at school to help pay for sports or activities being undertaken.
You could apply to the Queen Elizabeth Educational Trust Foundation for support for camps or other significant opportunities for your child.
The Principal has a support fund for students that need financial support to make the most of opportunities at school.
If you wish to discuss any of these options please do not hesitate to come and see us at the school office.
