Financial contributions and assistance

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 Contributions and Course Fees

Our school offers a diverse and relevant curriculum to all students. Parents are requested to pay a voluntary contribution of $50 (Years 7-10), $70 (Year 11 & 12) each year to purchase resources which enhance learning for all students.

Although contributions are voluntary in accordance with departmental policy, it is vital that parents support the school through payment of this money as it provides a major part of the budget figure allocated to resourcing the educational program of our school.

In addition to this contribution, costs for materials/activities exist in some courses. These courses usually have consumables or use equipment which are expensive to maintain and replace.

Fees Schedule 2021

Electives fees must be paid. Students who have not arranged payment by the end of week 3 each semester or negotiated a payment plan with the Administration Manager, will be offered a no-cost elective alternate. These payments for selected subjects are necessary as they cover goods and materials used by students.

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.

Private Vehicle Conveyance Subsidy

  • Private Vehicle Conveyance (PVC) subsidy is available for eligible school students, who are residents of NSW, where there is no public transport for all or part of the journey and who reside more than 1.6 kms walking distance to the nearest bus pick-up point. PVC is paid on a daily basis for the single distance journey between home and school bus pick up point. PVC may also be available on medical or safety grounds (where the journey between home and the pick-up point is unsafe).
  • Application forms are available online via the Dept of Transport. A new form is required by the Dept of Transport if your child is new at Yass High School.
