The Materials and Services Charge is required to maintain the breadth of educational programs at Seaton High School. We expect all families to pay as this will enable students to be offered opportunities to achieve academically, to use learning technologies, and to participate in the extensive co-curricula and sporting programs. These charges cover most aspects of the school's provision of resources for use in teaching programs. The Materials and Services Charge ensures we can offer high quality educational programs and facilities, over and above that which is provided by the government.
The School Charges include
The compulsory charge set by DfE
The use of textbooks
The provision of some classroom consumables, education materials and apparatus and equipment used in most subjects studied during the year
An ID card which is used for borrowing library and textbooks from the Resource Centre. The card is also used for identification when travelling by public transport
A diary for students to keep a record of their homework and to organise their daily school activities. It is also an important means of communication between school and home, and contains some important information
Access to the school curriculum computer network
Provision of an initial credit for internet, e-mail and printing facilities
School Laptop Program
All students have the opportunity of participating in the school laptop program by:
Purchasing a laptop through HP, with the option of a one-off payment or by applying for 24 months interest free terms.
