services can be met by this. A small parent/caregiver supplement payment allows your child improved educational resources and services. Additionally, such payments are one way of increasing our resource base fairly among our school clients so that our teaching and learning programs continue to be enriched well beyond the basic requirements. The NT Government currently provides $92.25 per capita annually for Primary students to the School Council. Supplementing this allocation will allow the school to provide approximately $70 for class stationery and other supplies for each student and also assists in providing a broad range of educational services for students. The NT Government has also made available to parents/caregivers a $50 Back to School voucher for each Primary student that may be used for the purchase of school stationery and uniforms from the school. It is your choice as to how you spend your vouchers at the school, within NT Government guidelines. For example, you may choose to purchase uniforms or use your voucher as part payment of the Supplement. HOW IS YOUR PAYMENT USED? Your payment of $2.25 per week supplements the government allocation and enables the student to be provided with an attractive Student Resource Pack (stationery etc) for the year to the approximate value of $70. The school takes advantage of bulk purchasing capacity with specialist school supply companies to provide standardised classroom materials and good value for money. Your payment also supports the delivery of a range of services, including Library Resources, Copying/Printing, Visual Arts, Computing, Excursions (x 2), Arts Performances (x 2) and St John Ambulance Cover. Supplement payments are applied directly to your childs education and are NOT used to operate and maintain the buildings and grounds, pay for services such as electricity and water, pay salaries etc. PARENTS/CAREGIVERS OBLIGATIONS - $2.25 per child per week: Payment of the Supplement is expected for all Primary students (unless the Supporting Families provisions below are activated). Non-payment means that the student is issued with the basic governmentfunded Student Resource Pack and additional services may need to be paid for on a pay as you go basis. OTHER SCHOOL EXPENSES: There are some other expenses which individual students may incur during the year. These expenses are usually related to particular activities such school camps, competitions, additional excursions and performances etc and are mostly conducted on a user-pays basis. MANAGEMENT OF YOUR CONTRIBUTION: Supplement payments are due in the first week of the school year or upon enrolment. Receipts will be issued for all payments. Student Resource Packs will be issued once the Payment has been made (parents/ caregivers may be asked to assist with covering books). Students will be able to purchase additional stationery items through the school if they wish to. SUPPORTING FAMILIES: Where the Supplement payment poses problems for parents/caregivers, the Principal may make special arrangements with individual parents/caregivers, with part payments,
