Schooling 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.

Schools require many resources to provide the best possible learning outcomes for each and every student at Tacoma Public School.  The Department of Education provide some of the funds to purchase necessary resources.

A large proportion of the funds we use to purchase resources comes from the generous support of our P&C Association.

The Voluntary School Contributions (based on the figure set each year by the P&C at their AGM) assists our school to purchase the important resources and equipment for our students.
