Resource scheme

As a service to the families of the school and with the support of the Parents and Citizens’ Association, Caboolture State High School operates a resource hire scheme. It aims to:

  • reduce costs to parents
  • increase resources available to students
  • reduce demands on parents for additional outlays during the school year.

Application forms for participation in the scheme can be found here:

 

The scheme shields parents from the high costs involved in maintaining and improving the textbook, equipment and resources available to students.

 

Participation in the scheme is totally voluntary, so all parents must appreciate that texts and resources purchased with money contributed by participating parents can only be made available to those students whose parents pay their contributions.

Benefits of the Student Resource Scheme

The following list, although not exhaustive, gives the range of benefits to students: 

  • prescribed textbooks for each subject selected, for the period of that study
  • reproduced class material which complement and/or substitute for textbooks
  • wider range of textbooks, where a single text is insufficient
  • audio and visual tapes
  • access and use of internet and computer resources
  • extensive teacher prepared handouts
  • sporting equipment and bus costs for inter-school sport
  • a homework diary and school magazine
  • restricted Internet access.

 

Note: The conditions of hire should be read carefully.

Amounts

$215.00 per student, or maximum $520 per family (3 or more students). This is a once per year textbook, equipment and materials charge.
