Student resources

​Consumable contribution

The aim of Algester Primary School is to achieve the best learning outcomes for all students. Each year, the school asks parents to contribute to the payment for classroom consumables and other resource items as deemed necessary by the teacher and school.

From 1st January 2012 the scheme has operated under the policy and guidelines of the Department of Education and Training FNM-PR-018: Student Resources Scheme. The scheme is still supported and annually approved by our Parents and Citizens Association {P&C}, is still managed by the school and operates in accordance with section 51 of the Education [General Provisions] Act 2006.

  • Years Prep – 6 = $120 which consists of $100 Student Resource and $20 Voluntary Contribution to help maintain air conditioning in our classrooms.

The scheme is voluntary however, please be aware that books, materials and consumables required under this scheme are not funded by school grants. Therefore if you do not wish to join the scheme you are still responsible for providing your child with the items that would otherwise have been provided by the scheme to enable your child to fully engage with the curriculum. Items provided by the scheme could include: Reproduced class workbooks; additional art and craft supplies; stationery; writing and drawing equipment; consumables and cooking materials; and access to Mathletics and Reading Eggs / Eggspress Programs.
