Schooling costs

Money Collection Days

Berowra Public School collects money on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. For security of payments, money must be sent to school on these days in a signed payment envelope.
Money is to be given to the class teacher on Tuesday and Thursday mornings so that it can be processed and receipted that day.
Any payments for choir, dance, drama, interschool sport or extra curricular activities as well as P&C Support Group funds can also be handed to the class teacher.

School Costs

There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for such as:

  • uniforms
  • school books and equipment
  • excursions
  • extra-curricular activities.

Voluntary school contribution

At the start of each year we may ask for a voluntary school contribution to enhance our educational and sporting programs.

We try to keep any additional costs to a minimum and may be able to assist families who are having financial difficulty paying schooling costs.

These important funds buy educational resources for use in classrooms and the library for the benefit of all children.


As well as the voluntary contributions, fund-raising activities by the P & C and School Support Group greatly assist the school by providing valuable resources including classroom readers, sport equipment, play equipment, class rewards and art/craft materials. Your voluntary contributions play an important part in helping to provide direct benefits to your children.


Following discussions with both the School Council and the P&C Association, the General School Contribution for 2014 has been set at $100 per child, with a maximum of $250 per family. Payment may be made as a lump sum, or by instalments.


Thank you for your continuing support.
