Contributions & Charges

We continue to look for ways to support and enhance the programs and activities on offer throughout the year and these valuable additional funds are greatly appreciated.

The Carlisle Primary School Board has endorsed our schedule of Contributions and Charges for 2021 in accordance with the School Education Regulations 2000 as part of the School Education Act 1999. This schedule is designed to provide you with information about anticipated costs that may occur throughout the coming school year and allow you time to forward plan the likely outlays.

2022 Contributions & Charges Schedule

The schedule is made up of the following four areas:

1. Voluntary Contributions

Contributions are voluntary and have been set at $60 per student, equating to approximately $1.50 per week. Voluntary Contributions represent an important revenue source and supplement school expenditure. While contributions are voluntary, the quality of our learning programs will be maximised when all families contribute. Payments can be made directly to the school (after receiving the first statement of the year) or via the Ziggies Requirements List.


Children will engage in a variety of activities associated with educational programs for which charges will be incurred. The Schedule for Charges section is outlined over the page. We encourage parents to make contact with the Principal or school office if you would like to discuss payment arrangements to meet the cost of these valuable opportunities.

3Personal Items

This list covers items of a personal nature i.e. school uniform and stationery list. The school uniform can be purchased through Nell Gray’s Uniform Concept store located in Inglewood. Parents may purchase stationery items from their chosen retailer or use the nominated school supplier Ziggies. We have chosen Ziggies as our preferred supplier as it is a West Australian owned and operated business and we endeavour to support our local community.  In order to keep costs lower for families the school has chosen to forego the commission rebate for each order processed through Ziggies.

4. Extra Optional Costs

This covers other school activities provided through the school. These vary from student to student and costs will be advised at the time of the activity/event.
