Emerald Secondary College makes every effort to keep the cost of items and activities to a minimum and affordable for all parents.
Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard curriculum requirements as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum F-10, VCE and VCAL.
Schools do not ask parents to pay for school operating costs (e.g. utility costs) or general and unspecified charges.
Schools request payments from parents under three categories:
Essential Student Learning Items
o Items and activities which the school deems essential for student learning.
o Parents may choose to purchase essential items through the school or provide their own.
o Items and activities that enhance or broaden the schooling experience of students and are offered in addition to the standard curriculum.
o These are provided to students on a user-pays basis.
o Voluntary contributions support the school to continue to be the best local school for all students and can be for general or specific purpose.
o Students will not be disadvantaged in any way if parents do not make a contribution.
