Contributions and Charges

Lake Gwelup Primary School

The Department of Education Contributions, Charges and Fees Manual has set the maximum contribution by parents at $60 per child from Kindergarten to Year 6.

The Lake Gwelup Primary School Board has approved the Voluntary Contribution for 2024 as $60 per child (equates to $15 per term, $1.50 per week).

Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure on students learning experiences in the classroom. The quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family makes its contribution by supplementing funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth governments.

Families experiencing financial hardship are invited to make an appointment with the Principal to negotiate a payment plan.

The Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) has set the 2024 P&C Levy at $70 for one child and $100 for families of more than one child to supplement fundraising efforts.  For more information, contact the P&C Association:
