Charges and Contributions
We run a varied and engaging range of subjects for students at Narrogin SHS and encourage all parents to continue to support the school through payment of contributions and charges, as this will ensure we continue to have the capacity to provide a wide range of opportunities to our students.
A voluntary payment of $235 is requested from parents and goes towards the cost of materials and equipment used by students in Years 7 – 10. Voluntary contributions are costs associated with school based resources (such as paper, specialist equipment use, chemicals, sporting equipment) that is used by multiple students and retained by the school.
Compulsory charges are applied to high cost electives chosen by students in Years 7-10 and to all Year 11 & 12 courses. Payment of charges are compulsory. Students are able to select a combination of subjects that meet the maximum contribution value of $235 and therefore do not attract compulsory charges. Compulsory charges are made up of costs directly used or consumed by the student and are often paid to external agencies to run the course (such as bus hire fees, entrance fees, guest speakers).
Extra Cost Optional Components
These are optional activities that are above and beyond normal education program. If selected, these costs are compulsory
Payments can be made at the Administration Office. Office hours are 8.00am – 4.00 Monday to Friday. The school makes provision for the following payment options:
