Family contributions support the school in many ways where funding allocated by the Education Directorate needs support. Some examples are sporting equipment, library books, resources, computer technology. Contributions are also used to fund curriculum materials in science, technology, languages, as well as International Baccalaureate PYP and MYP program.  (NB: Tax deductible donations are non-refundable).

While contributions are voluntary under the ACT Education Act 2004, and no student will be disadvantaged by not paying their family contribution, your school community relies on every family contributing to the financial viability of the School.  Should you have trouble paying we are happy to arrange a payment plan or discuss other options to assist you.  Please contact Mel Schmidt, the School’s Finance Manager on 6142 1302 to discuss your circumstances.

Payment Methods ☐  Quickweb (via school website)   ☐  Direct deposit      ☐  Credit Card

If you are paying with Credit Card please contact the school on phone 6142 1300 with Credit Card details.

Payments made by Direct Deposit can be made into the School’s Westpac bank account, Gold Creek School Management Account, BSB:032 777, Acc: 001340.

We thank you very much for your support of the school and your child/children’s education.
