2018 Payments

There are two main types of financial requests the school will ask for this year.

1. Voluntary Parent Donation – $330.00

A specified sum of money to support the provision of additional resources which benefit students. The donation is voluntary and parents have the right to pay this amount in full, in part or not at all. The voluntary donation of $330.00 may be tax exempt.

ANI is a high achieving decile 9 state funded school, however the funding we receive from the government is inadequate to provide the type of education and staffing ratios we offer.  Each year the Board of Trustees requests an annual parent donation, this is a key component of our budget and it allows us to provide:

  • High level technology, resources and facilities. All classrooms have chrome books and high speed broadband. We also have all our classrooms renovated into modern learning environments.
  • Specialist programmes – we have six additional specialist teachers employed to deliver the Science, Technology, Physical Education, Arts and Languages programmes.
  • Smaller class sizes – on average our class sizes are well below many other intermediate schools.

The costs to provide these extras cannot be met by government funding. We appreciate your donation which helps us resource these areas.

2. Charges for goods and services

These charges include consumables such as food products in technology and services such as trips or activities we organise for students.

a) Consumables: Take home component of materials –  $195.00

This request relates to items students make at school and then take home. The learning areas where items may be constructed are usually subjects with a practical component such as digital technology, 3D printing, hard materials, soft materials or food technology. We ask for payment to cover the cost of additional materials that are provided for each student so they can make something of quality and keep the item made in practical sessions. Students do get a great choice of what to make and without the payment of take home items we could not offer such a selection.

b) Services: Payment in advance for class trips/activities – $75.00

We know that various activities will take place during the course of the year. Parents often find it easier to pay for these at the start of the year. This avoids the inconvenience of seeking continued sums of money from you throughout the year. Examples could include a zoo trip, life education caravan, science roadshow and end of year picnic day. Participation in these activities is not a compulsory part of the school’s curriculum and therefore students can opt out. We also offer a pay as you attend option where we will request payment prior to the event taking place. A full breakdown of what trips and activities have taken place in your child’s class will be provided at the end of the year.

PAYMENT OPTIONS (Spread over the 2018 year)
$150.00 per term
$60.00 per month (10 months)
$15.00 per week (40 weeks term time)

Receipts will be issued for all payments.

Online Banking:
12 3048 0291429 00 (please include child’s full name, room number and reason for payment)

Additional costs not included above:
The cost for school camp (Year 8) and EOTC (Year 7) is not included in the above costs. Fees for these activities cannot be met from class trips/activities and are charged separately. To give you an idea of cost, in 2017 EOTC cost $185.00 per student and camp cost $350.00 per student.

The cost for sports team events (during school time and after school) will also be additional.

Parent and Community Surveys
The Board is committed to open communication and will seek your input on significant issues affecting the school. Regular surveys are administered on line to gather your opinion.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The PTA is a group of our parents (and teachers) who are keen to arrange school fundraising and social events. Funds raised help to provide additional resources for the school, ensuring our children have the best equipment and resources which support learning.

The PTA also acts as a link between school and home and joining the committee is a great way to meet new friends through school, support your children, and truly feel involved in their school activities. Meetings are held monthly and details of upcoming meetings and events are listed on the website.
