Parent Payments


All schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian Curriculum.  We assure you that all contributions are voluntary, nevertheless, the ongoing contributions from our families ensures that we can offer the best possible education and support for our students.

 

Yarraville West Primary School only requests contributions for items that we believe add value to the school experience for students. All contributions go specifically towards items and activities that help improve your child’s educational experience.

 

Within our school your support has allowed us to offer:

  • Smaller class sizes
  • An extra Specialist Class program
  • Extension programs ie; Claymation, Tournament of the Mind
  • Lunchtime clubs/activities ie; Environment, Junior/Senior choir, Lego, Basketball
  • Apple program for computer classes

  • iPads in classrooms
  • Art, Music and Physical Education equipment
  • Well-resourced library
  • Hands on equipment for Mathematics, Science and Technology

We want to thank you for all your support, whether that’s through fundraising or volunteering your time. This has made a huge difference to our school and the programs we can offer.
