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

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.
Every term the school issues families with an activities statement for each student. The activities statement covers excursions, incursions, resources such as workbooks and stationery, as well as voluntary payments such as the voluntary school contribution and the technology levy.
The school payments policy gives more information about schooling costs and how they are administered at Petersham Public School. Download our Parent Payments Policy (PDF 233KB)
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.
We would like to Acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation who are the traditional custodians of this land. We would also like to pay respect to Elders both past and present and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people present.
