School boards work in partnership with the principal and school communities. They have specific responsibility for endorsing and overseeing the strategic direction and priorities of the school; monitoring and reviewing school performance; developing, maintaining and reviewing curriculum; and approving budgets for the effective use of school resources; and management of financial risk.
School boards provide robust forward-thinking governance at the local level to ensure that schools meet the present and future needs of their school community. School boards are supported by the Education Directorate (the Directorate) to ensure that their responsibilities are fulfilled effectively.
Aranda Primary School has a reputation for academic excellence and high satisfaction amongst our parents and students. This is not accidental and arises from the dedication and efforts of the school staff and community and the resources they have to employ.
For K-6 voluntary contribution amounts remain the same as they have been since 2011: $200 for a single child or $300 if you have two or more children attending the school.
Voluntary contributions for pre-school is $200 per child.
To pay the voluntary contributions, simply complete and return the confidential payment slip attached to the letter, and pay using one of the payment option methods described on the form. Should you require further information in relation to the payment methods please contact the Business Manager through the Front Office on 6142 3030.
Families can elect to have their contributions split into three funds – Library Fund, Building Fund and General Fund, noting that donations to the Library and Building Funds are tax deductible.
Last year’s voluntary contributions from the families of the children that attend Aranda Primary School made a significant contribution towards improvements in school facilities, such as library resources, science equipment and science fair prizes, readers and chess equipment.
