Contributions and Charges

2024 Contributions and Charges – Parent Information Handbook

Kiara College is an outstanding Independent Public School that provides quality teaching across a broad range of engaging and interesting courses. The Kiara College Board has reviewed and endorsed the Contributions and Charges for 2023, to ensure that we are acting in accordance with the Education Act. 

Where do the Contributions and Charge Payments go? 

For Years 7 to 10, the maximum voluntary contributions the College can charge is $235.00, this is used for items such as: 

in-class textbooks and resources, art materials, ingredients for food production, timber, metal and consumable tools, sporting equipment and so on. 

Declining to pay voluntary contributions may mean we cannot maintain the high standard of educational materials for your child. We encourage you to pay these costs and offer a range of family friendly payment facilities. 

For Years 11 and 12 there are no maximum charges that are set by the State Government, however the College sets reasonable charges for the subjects. It is important to note that ALL subject costs in Years 11 and 12 are compulsory. 

You are encouraged to pay your Contributions and Charges before the end of Term 1. Funds received are used to purchase resources throughout the year. We are aware that for some families this may be a burden and advise it is possible to negotiate a payment plan. To arrange a plan, please contact our Administration Office.

Voluntary Approved Requests Student Services $10 

We are proud of the holistic student services we offer at Kiara College including Psychologist, non-denominational Chaplain, Nurse, Year Coordinators, Student Services Manager, Student Service Support Officers and Aboriginal and Islander Education Officers (AIEO). 

We believe our students should benefit from an excellent level of support. This cost exceeds the funding that we receive from the Government and therefore we rely on the money we raise from this request. Our Student Services Team offer talks on well-being, bullying prevention, self-esteem, engagement, health as well as providing reward activities. 

College Bus Replacement $20 

We have two buses that are used for most College excursions or external activities. This reduces the costs significantly of excursions. To assist in building a reserve account to replace the buses, the assistance of our families is appreciated. 

College Activities $20 

College activities include sports carnivals, K-Surf, Harmony Day, RU OK Day, Healthy Schools promotions, Act Belong Commit and other College-based activities that are partly funded by these collections. 

Information Technology $45 The resources provided by the College Library are up-to-date and from funds received through this collection we are able to continue to renew IT resources annually. 

Funds for Information Technology go towards providing technology resources and services that ensure students can access computers, programs and learning tools.

Optional Cost Year Book $30 

Each year staff and students work together towards providing a glossy full colour book of highlights, photographs and achievements for the year. Students love to look back on their college years and reminisce. Buying the Yearbook is optional, the cost is not included on the Contributions and Charges account and the book is distributed at the end of the year.
