2021 Parent Payment Arrangements

Pearcedale Primary School is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of the Essential Student Learning Items and parent payment arrangements for 2021.

The Essential Student Learning Items charge is a cost that the school incurs by purchasing on your behalf items such as stationery, cooking ingredients, materials and online subscriptions to learning activities.

Pearcedale Primary School makes every effort to keep the cost of Essential Student Learning Items and activities to a minimum and affordable for all parents through careful selection and bulk buying of individual student items.

Parent Payment Policy and Implementation

2021 Parent Payment Arrangements with Voluntary Contributions


Camps, Sports & Excursions Fund (CSEF)

Every Victorian child should have access to the world of learning opportunities that exist beyond the classroom. The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund ensures that no student misses out on the opportunity to join their classmates for important, educational and fun activities. School camps provide children with inspiring experiences in the great outdoors, excursions encourage a deeper understanding of how the world works and sports teach teamwork, discipline and leadership. All are part of a healthy curriculum.

CSEF is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities.

If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF. The allowance will be paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions, or sporting activities for the benefit of your child. The annual CSEF amount per student will be: • $125 for primary school students • $225 for secondary school students.
