Financial contributions and assistance

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

Costs to consider include:

  • uniforms

  • school books and equipment

  • excursions

  • co-curricular activities.

Voluntary school contributions

Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.

For more information, visit the Voluntary School Contribution policy.

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

Financial assistance

If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.

Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
