Resource scheme


Victoria Point State High School operates an annual Student Resource Scheme (SRS). 

A SRS is a service provided by the school to assist parents with a cost effective alternative to purchasing textbooks, resources, consumables and/or materials from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the school’s bulk purchasing processes. These resources enhance the student’s engagement with the curriculum. 

A SRS provides a convenient option that offers good value to participants and ensures participating students have access to the same standard of resources. Parents will need to provide these resources themselves if they choose not to participate in the SRS. 

Our SRS is ratified and endorsed through our P & C and is widely accepted by our wider school community as it provides exceptional value for money to our families.

Whether or not you choose to participate in our SRS, parents must complete the Participation Agreement Form. 

Please download the Participation Agreement Form (PAF) below:

Should you wish not to participate, parents/caregivers will need to provide the resources for their child based on the list provided by the school. The school will include a list of costs for any school produced workbooks or resources that a parent is unable to buy elsewhere. 

Any fees and charges paid to the School are directed to the purpose for which it is charged. 

Additional charges will be incurred in relation to ‘user pays’ activities such as excursions, camps etc.  All school activities are calculated on a cost recovery only basis, according to the number of students who have indicated their attendance. 

Participation of students in an excursion, camp or additional activity is indicated through payment of the set fee together with a completed and signed permission form completed by the parent/caregiver. 

Please contact the school accounts receivable officer for a summarised list of inclusions in relation to our SRS for a specific year level. 

Refund guidelines

At Victoria Point State High School, we are committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for students, staff and volunteers. This commitment includes the health and safety of staff and students when conducting curriculum activities in the school or in other locations. 

School excursions and camps enhance a student’s learning by providing opportunities for the student to participate in activities, both curriculum-related and recreational, outside the normal school routine. 

All planned school excursions are approved by the Principal and endorsed by the P & C Committee. 

As the school budget is unable meet any shortfalls in funding for an excursion or camp due to the subsequent non-participation of students who had previously indicated attendance of the activity, fees already paid for an excursion or school camp may be refunded in full, in part or not at all, having regard to the associated expenses incurred and the circumstances of the non-participation. 

If a parent/caregiver wishes to apply for a refund due to their child’s non-participation in an excursion or camp activity, they may do so by completing a request for refund form available from the school finance office. 

Where possible, the request should include the receipt relating to the payment for which a refund is being sought. 

It is preferred that refunds are returned as a credit against the student’s financial account at the school and used to offset any future charges incurred to the student.
