To enhance and maximise student learning,
Centenary State High School operates a Student Resource Scheme. The purpose of
the Scheme is to provide parents/carers with a cost effective scheme for the use of
curriculum textbooks, resources, consumables and other essential materials for
student use. The Scheme is endorsed annually by the P&C Association
and is approved by Education Queensland.
Apart from providing a cost effective alternative, the
Student Resource Scheme eliminates the need for large and ongoing purchases
throughout the school year. It is also an equitable scheme, ensuring all
students have the resources necessary for their education. Textbooks, class
notes (handouts), and a variety of consumables will be provided as needed. Some
texts will be issued on a yearly basis, while others for a term, a week or even
for use for an individual lesson, avoiding the need for students to take texts
The parent/carer contribution for 2021 is set at:
- New enrolments will be invoiced $280 on enrolment and
payment is required at this time (this includes an early bird discount of $20).
- Currently enrolled students will be invoiced $300 in August of each year with an
early bird discount of $20 being applied if paid by 30 November of that year.
- Curriculum Charges will be invoiced in February of each
year. In some subjects, student invoices
will be emailed throughout the year, which will align with their timetables.
- Excursion, camps and extra-curricula activities will be invoiced as required with payment by a due date.
All fees and charges should be finalised by 31 July of
each year, for those who do not wish to pay before the discount date.
The school receives on
behalf of parents/carers, a textbook allowance from Education Queensland. The
2021 allowance is $130 per year for students in Years 7-10 and $281 for those
in Years 11 and 12. For current rates refer to https://education.qld.gov.au/about-us/budgets-funding-grants/grants/parents-and-students/textbook-resource-allowance.
In addition to the SRS, additional charges may include:
- Curriculum Charges - These fees are an additional charge for some specific areas of study
which require extra, intensive resourcing.
These can occur across core subjects and extra-curricula subjects like the STudent Enrichment Program (STEP) and Home Group (HG). These charges cover
activities and resources outside of the SRS and may include academic
competitions, incursions, on-line learning, subscriptions and registration
fees. Many extension and senior students
undertake TAFE, university and certificate courses which incur significant
charges from external organisations.
- Sport, excursions and
camps - These will be invoiced as required and should be paid in full by a given
date or may be added to payment plans if requested.
related activities - These may include the Semi-Formal, Senior
Jersey, Formal and Mystery Tour, etc.
- Consumables not
provided - A list of individual/personal requirements can be located on the school
website or by contacting the school.
