Fees and charges

Heathfield High School Materials and Services Charges 2021: $780.00

(Governing Council Approved 26/11/2020)

The materials and services charge has been designed to support Heathfield High School to continue to offer a broad and rich curriculum that goes beyond the base level of education.

The charge covers curriculum/subject supplies and services required to meet the essential cost of the course across all subject areas e.g. Art, Science, Home Economics, PE and Tech Studies

Courses can vary in cost depending on projects and/ or material provided and where applicable, levies will be charged for materials that are required in addition to the basic materials normally used. e.g. Oak wood instead of Pine.

Costs for some items such as elective larger school projects, camps and/or excursions that are beyond the allowances included as part of the core curriculum, will need to be paid for as required and are determined as “other charges” as per Department for Education instruction.

Our budget for curriculum consumables and resources will be in line with the funding we receive from our Materials & Service Charge. Every subject area is automatically allocated consumables and resources funding to cover these expenses.
