2021 Student Resource Scheme
critical element of providing the very best programs we can for our students at
Pacific Paradise State School relates to our Student Resource Scheme. This
scheme enhances the learning for your child in the classroom by providing the
ability for the school to purchase additional resources and provide ongoing
classroom stationery throughout the year. Items such as:
Enhancing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics: digital resources, software coding programs, robotics, inquiry based learning, creative thinking and communication technology.)
Enhancing our numeracy program (Hands on building and investigation)
Enhancing our literacy program
our sports program (Skill development, specialist training
for sport, lunch time activities.)
The mix of resources that are purchased
on your behalf does vary from year level to year level in the school depending
on the particular needs of those year levels. The details of these fees are
outlined in the document which can be found to the right hand side of this page called 'year level' 2021 SRS.
We appreciate that the costs of
schooling your children especially in times of other increases in the cost of
living for families are still significant, even in a heavily subsidized state
system. For this reason we try to keep the cost of the SRS scheme to a minimum
on the basis that if everyone in our large school community contributes we are
able to offer exceptional value for money considering the additional learning
opportunities these resources provide.
Given the demands on the family budget
we understand that not everyone is in a position to pay the full SRS scheme at
this time, however we would appreciate an indication of your intention to join
the scheme for 2021 by returning the consent form.
Please note that arrangements can be
made to pay this fee in instalments in the first 2 weeks of each school term,
If you are experiencing financial difficulties
