Essential and Voluntary Contributions 2021


Beaumaris Primary School receives strong support from families through the payment of student charges and voluntary contributions. This financial support enables our school to provide a wide range of curriculum programs, and maintain and develop facilities and services that would otherwise not be possible given the school’s limited financial resources. In order to offer great educational experiences for students, the School Council has decided on the school charges and voluntary contributions for 2021 as set out on the payment schedule.
