2022 Parent Payment Arrangements
Pearcedale Primary School is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of the voluntary financial contributions for 2022.
Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary. Nevertheless, the ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students.
We want to thank you for all your support, whether that’s through fundraising or volunteering your time. This has made a huge difference to our school and the programs we can offer.
The environment and resources that we enjoy today represent the contributions made by our Parent / Guardian community over many years. Parent / Guardian voluntary contributions have made significant difference to the quality of our programs. This financial support ensures that we can continue to provide the excellent range of facilities and resources for your children. Your support in 2022 will continue to allow us to:
- Provide high quality programs and specific subject materials and equipment for: English, Mathematics, STEM, Art, Performing Arts, Inquiry Units, Auslan and PE
- Maintain and develop the school grounds and playgrounds
- Ensure the upkeep of our computer devices to enhance learning opportunities
- Maintain sufficient class sets of books for students to develop student reading skills
- Provide hands on maths equipment i.e.: materials for teaching purposes
- Facilitate Literacy and Mathematics online digital subscriptions
- Deliver a range of sporting equipment
- Arrange for individual student supplies and class bulk supplies
- Offer effective First Aid for all students.
Please find attached Pearcedale Primary School’s voluntary financial Curriculum and Other Contributions schedule for 2022, which includes an overview of what your contributions will help us provide.
Please note – there will be no individual book packs provided to students in 2022. All necessary consumable items will be supplied directly to classrooms in bulk and will be distributed to students as and when they are needed.
For further information on the Department’s Parent Payments Policy please see a one-page overview attached.

Camps, Sports & Excursions Fund (CSEF)
Every Victorian child should have access to the world of learning opportunities that exist beyond the classroom. The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund ensures that no student misses out on the opportunity to join their classmates for important, educational and fun activities. School camps provide children with inspiring experiences in the great outdoors, excursions encourage a deeper understanding of how the world works and sports teach teamwork, discipline and leadership. All are part of a healthy curriculum.
CSEF is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities.
If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF. The allowance will be paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions, or sporting activities for the benefit of your child. The annual CSEF amount per student will be: • $125 for primary school students • $225 for secondary school students.
Contact the school office to obtain a CSEF application form or download from www.education.vic.gov.au
You should lodge a CSEF application form at the school by 25th February. For more information about the CSEF visit www.education.vic.gov.au/csef
