Schooling costs

At Cessnock East Public School, being part of the Priority Funded School and Priority Action School programs enables us to provide all required resources to enhance each students learning experience.  Instead of paying school fees, we ask parents to ensure their child come to school each day in their full school uniform as we believe this instills a sense of pride and belonging to our school community.

There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for such as:

  • uniforms
  • school books and equipment
  • excursions
  • extra-curricular activities.

Voluntary school contribution

At the start of each year we may ask for a voluntary school contribution to enhance our educational and sporting programs.

We try to keep any additional costs to a minimum and may be able to assist families who are having financial difficulty paying schooling costs.
