2024 Parent Payment Arrangements

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Geelong East Primary School is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of Geelong East Primary’s voluntary financial contributions for 2024.

Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary.

Geelong East Primary School is able to provide the excellent programs and resources it has, through a combination of Government School Funding, parent contributions and limited fundraising.  I see your support as I endeavour with staff and School Council to provide an on-going enhancement of equipment and resources to benefit all student learning.  I ask you to read the attached notices carefully.

  • Curriculum contributions: parents/carers contribute to the school for the provision of items and activities that students use or participate in, to access the curriculum.
  • Other contributions which parents/carers are invited to donate to the school for specific projects. We are inviting voluntary contributions to support the upkeep and maintenance of our school grounds.  Thank you for your support!
  • Extra-Curricular Items and Activities are provided on a user-pays basis eg… school camps, end of year celebration days, division athletics.

Payment Methods

  • Compass Pay via Course Confirmations
  • BPAY – You can nominate to pay all or instalments of the Curriculum, Extra Curriculum and Other Contributions • School Office – You are able to come to the office and pay via EFT

Payment can begin from now and we would appreciate any payment arrangements to finalised by Friday 2nd February 2024.  All booklist supplies will be available for students in their classroom on the first day of Term 1 Tuesday 30th January 2024.

The school office will be open on Wednesday 24th January and Thursday 25th January 2023 from 10 a.m. – 3.00 p.m for over the phone payments or cash payments.  Payments can also be made anytime by Direct Debit, BPAY or Compass.
