Financial Information

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.

For more information, visit the Voluntary School Contribution policy.

The Merewether Foundation

The Merewether Foundation has been established by the School Council with the objective of promoting public education by enhancing and encouraging the educational purposes of our school.  This is ongoing and involves raising of levies through the Building Fund and Library Fund.   

All monies raised will be used for the provision of additional educationally worthwhile facilities and resources at our school.

  • Building Levy $75
  • Library Levy $125

Contributions to the Building and Library Funds provide valuable resources to ensure effective implementation of the school's programs. Contributions to the Building and Library Funds are fully tax deductible as these accounts are Australian Taxation Office (ATO) approved as part of the Merewether Foundation.

Financial assistance

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.
