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

Annual Parent Information Letter (PDF, 938KB)

A Student Resource Scheme (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. 

The SRS provides a convenient option for families, offering excellent value for money 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 school community.

A Student Resource Scheme Participation Agreement Form (PAF) MUST be completed for each and every student enrolled in order for Victoria Point State High School to meet our mandatory requirements as set out by the Department of Education. 

Please download the Participation Agreement Form (PAF) below:


Being part of the SRS is optional.  However, being part of the SRS is the easiest, most cost effective way for both families and the school to manage access to resources for all students.

Refer to the summarised lists of inclusions in relation to our SRS for a specific year level for more information.  Please note that dependent on the year level, your student may or may not study every subject listed. 

 

Parents who choose NOT to join the SRS in any year

  • Complete the section of the PAF selecting that you do not wish to participate in the SRS
  • Provide the resources that would otherwise have been provided by the school through the SRS ie textbooks and resources
  • Will receive an invoice for consumables/resources/equipment used that are unable to be supplied by parents ie school produced resources/specialised equipment/programs and licences etc

All fees and charges paid to Victoria Point State High School are directed to the purpose for which they are charged. 

Additional charges will be incurred in relation to 'user pays' activities such as excursions, camps and other non-curricular activities 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 any student in an excursion, camp or additional activity is indicated through payment of the set fee together with a permission form completed and signed by parent/caregiver. 

Textbook and Resource Allowance

State schools that offer a SRS will apply the TRA as a reduction to the annual SRS participation fee.  After application of the TRA, families joining the SRS will be issued with an invoice showing the balance payable.

Parents of eligible students, who have informed the school that they do not wish to participate in the SRS will receive the TRA as a credit to the student's account.  If no outstanding fees are payable, the TRA may be refunded to the parent once completion of the Request for Refund is completed, signed and submitted back to the school.

Eligibility of the student to receive the TRA will be investigated prior to any credit/refund processes being completed.

Please contact our Finance Team on 3820 5888 or finance@vpshs.eq.edu.au for further information.

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.
