Contributions and Other Costs

John Monash Science School is a State Government Senior Secondary School. School fees consist of compulsory and voluntary components.

The government policy in relation to fees states that payments fall into three categories:

  • Essential education items which parents and guardians are required to provide or pay the school to provide for their child (e.g. for stationery, textbooks, iPad and school uniform);
  • Optional extras which are offered on a user-pays basis and which parents and guardians may choose whether their child accesses or participates in (e.g. for school magazines or extra curricular programs or activities);
  • Voluntary financial contributions which parents and guardians may be invited to donate to the school (via our Building or Library Fund. Donations to these funds are fully tax deductible).

A full statement in relation to fees will be provided to all students and parents at the time of enrolment. Uniform and textbooks constitute other costs.

Any families experiencing financial difficulty should contact the Business Manager Corey Goodes at the school.
