Rangeview Primary School is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning, and a continued focus on the health and wellbeing of our community.  At Rangeview Primary we provide rich and diverse learning experiences which extends well beyond the standard curriculum and would like to advise you of our Parent Payments Policy and voluntary financial contributions for 2023.

Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary.  Nevertheless, the ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students.

Please be assured Rangeview Primary School makes every effort to keep the cost of items and activities to a minimum and affordable for all.  We are continually striving to achieve the best for all students and these contributions, which are approved by School Council, will allow us to provide extra programs and equipment for our students.

Family Contributions are used to cover additional expenditure not covered by Government funding, such as classroom consumables, digital learning, IT resources, art room materials, flora and fauna program, excursions and camps.  Families also have an opportunity to contribute to the First Aid, Library Fund, and Building Fund. Contributing to these funds assists us to provide first aid care to our students and with maintaining our library and buildings.

We want to thank you for all your support, whether that’s through making voluntary contributions, fundraising or volunteering your time.  It is through the combination of parent contributions, donations and fundraising that we are able to offer the rich and diverse learning experience we do for our students.
