Centralian Senior College asks parents to make a yearly contribution of $170 per student in order to provide students with additional resources to enhance their education. Payment of a parent contribution is not compulsory but provision of certain goods and services is contingent upon its payment.
Specialist Subject Fees
In most subjects additional material costs or outside facility hire fees are charged. For example consumables for Art and Home Economics, entrance fees to Physical Education activities. Any such costs for courses are noted in the Curriculum Insert and parents will receive an invoice if these costs are applicable.
NT Government Back to School Voucher
The NT Government provides every student with a Back to School voucher each year which may be used by parents for the payment of extra materials or for the purchase of items such as calculators and art resource packs. The voucher may not be used for the parent contribution.
Payment of parent contributions can be made by cash, cheque (made payable to Centralian Senior College), EFTPOS, Bankcard, Mastercard, Visacard or by direct deposit as directed on the invoice.
Excursions & Performances
Excursions, field trips and / or performances are an essential part of some courses and as such attendance and participation in these activities is compulsory. In most cases an assessment task/s is based on the excursion. Notification of the costs for these excursions and activities will be provided by the subject teacher to students when beginning courses. A charge may also be levied for any non-compulsory camps, excursions, sporting trips and performances attended by students.
Parents are required to complete all necessary forms and to provide payment prior to students travelling on excursions. Excluding independent students no student will be permitted to attend an excursion without authorisation or pre-payment from a parent / carer.
Some courses at Centralian Senior College involve compulsory excursions and / or out-of-class activities which students must complete and for which students must meet the costs. Excursion information for a course will be provided by the course teacher.
