Levies and Charges are reviewed at the end of each year.
Parents/Guardians may be eligible for Student Assistance (STAS), which waives their child's levies for the year.
Student Assistance Form (for levies)
STAS provides financial assistance for eligible families, by waiving the cost of school levies. Levies include costs for items and services that are
required to complete the normal educational instruction at the school
Families who are eligible for a Centrelink Health Care Card, Centrelink Low Income Health
Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card will be eligible for STAS.
Your eligibility for STAS will be assessed based on whether you hold a Centrelink Health Care Card, Centrelink
Low Income Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card.
Student Assistance applications have now closed for 2021, however applications for 2022 will begin in October 2021.
Most parents who currently receive STAS will not need to provide any additional information. If further
information is required, we will make contact with you during Term 4.
