Family contributions are used to fund the school in many ways which help to support the funding that the education directorate allocate. 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.
You can pay your family contribution in one of three ways;
Payments can be made by credit card, EFTPOS, cheque and direct deposit into the school’s Westpac bank account, Gold Creek School Management Account, BSB:032 777, Acc: 001340.
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 Kerry Lyttle, the School’s Business & Facilities Manager on 6142 1307 to discuss your circumstances.
This is the link to the payment note and we thank you very much for your support of the school and your student’s education.
