West Coast Secondary Education Support Centre

Contributions and Charges

The Centre issues invoices for school contributions and charges. Prompt payment of contributions and charges are essential as these enable the school to continue with our educational programs. If you would like to discuss payment options, please feel free to contact our Manager, Corporate Services on 9345 6603.

Secondary Assistance Scheme
The Western Australian Department of Education provides an allowance to assist eligible families with secondary schooling costs. To be eligible for the allowance the parent/guardian must hold a Centrelink or Veterans’ Affairs card that represents a statement of income for the family.

The allowance consists of two components:
• $115  Clothing Allowance paid directly to the parent/guardian or the school.
• $235  Educational Program Allowance paid directly to the school.

Application is made by the parent or guardian for students enrolled in Years 7-12 at a secondary school.

Forms can be obtained from the Centre and must be completed by the end of Term 1.
