Voluntary school contributions
Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.
At Blacktown West Public School, our voluntary contribution is in the form of a book pack. Book packs are available for each grade and contain all your child's stationery needs for the year. Teachers will notify parents of specific class requirements, which will be kept to a minimum for each grade.
If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.
Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
