Parent Contributions

Parent Contributions

At Truganina South Primary School, the child is at the centre of all we do. We collaborate to support student wellbeing and learning, preparing our students for happy and successful futures. We are committed to providing the very best education for all our students.

In Term 4, School Council reviews and sets the Parent Contributions for the coming year. Council is always mindful of finding the right balance between minimising the financial impact to families whilst ensuring that our school continues to deliver holistic, robust and enriching educational programs for our students.

Parent Contribution information is distributed to families no later than the first week of November each year.

Educational Items

Please see book lists above for items that we recommend you purchase from Paperchase for your child to individually own and use.

Our school is partnering with Paperchase as our preferred supplier of student book packs. We are confident that you will find Paperchase to be value for money, however parents are welcome to seek out comparable quotes from other suppliers if they wish. Please be mindful however that if you choose to source these items yourself, you should ensure that the items purchased are comparable to those listed on the booklist and are brought to school with your child on the first day of Term 1, 2023.

Financial Support For Families

Truganina South Primary School understands that some families may experience financial difficulty and offers a range of support options, including:


Camps, Sports & Excursion Fund (CSEF)

The Victorian Government has again committed to providing eligible students with Camps, Sports & Excursion funds (CSEF). These funds are paid to the school to use towards excursions, incursions and camps for eligible students. To be eligible for the funding, a parent or legal guardian must be the holder of a current Healthcare card or Pension card or be a temporary foster parent on the first day of Term 1 or Term 2. Parents who are eligible for CSEF will be required to complete the and submit a CSEF application form by the due date. Applications close at the end of Term 2, 2023.
