Student Resource Scheme
 
In 2018 Kenmore South State School is reintroducing a Student Resource Scheme. We believe this system is responsive to the learning needs of our students and the teaching needs of our teachers.
 
Parents are invited to join the Student Resource Scheme (SRS) for 2018.  This scheme operates under the policy and guidelines of the Department Education, Training and Employment.  The scheme, while supported and approved annually by the school’s Parents and Citizens Association (P&C), is managed by the school and operates in accordance with section 51 of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006. The cost of providing instruction, administration and facilities for the education of a student at a state school is met by the State. However, a parent is directly responsible for providing their child with other resources for use at school.
 
The scheme is voluntary and you are under no obligation to join.  However, please be aware that materials and consumables required under this scheme are not funded by school grants. Therefore if you do not wish to join the scheme you are responsible for providing your child with the items.
 
The provision of this scheme ensures that well resourced learning by our students remains our key focus.  The scheme is not a fundraiser for the school.  Its purpose is to provide a cost effective alternative to purchasing resources and consumables from elsewhere, at reduced prices gained from the school’s bulk purchasing processes.  Fees fund essential resources and materials used in his/her classroom.  Items provided by the scheme are as follows:

A comprehensive list of what the Student Resource Scheme participation fee provides for your child is available on request from the front office.
 
To join the scheme you are required to complete the attached Participation Agreement Form.  There are terms and conditions on the back of the form.  Please note this is a generic form for all Queensland primary and secondary schools.  Please return the form to the school office by Friday 16 February 2018. 
 
An invoice will be sent home after the participation form has been returned.  Payments will be due for payment by the end of Term 1.  Payments can be made via BPoint 24/7 (preferred method - link and CRN included on invoice or see over), at the office cash collection window between 8.00am and 9.30am daily, by cheque or direct deposit into school bank account (Kenmore South State School BSB: 064 152  Account Number: 00090162).
 
If you do not elect to join the scheme you are still required to complete and return the Participation Agreement Form, indicating your non participation, to the school office by Friday 16 February 2018.  It will then be your responsibility to purchase the resources provided by the scheme.
 
Please note:
• Excursions, incursions, camps, interschool sport, swimming and instrumental music fees are not included in the SRS.
• Total costs for students enrolling in Terms 2, 3 or 4 will be charged on a pro-rata basis.
• Refunds of up to 50% will be made for students who leave the school.
 
If you are experiencing genuine financial hardship, you can make an appointment with the Principal and/or Business Services Manager to discuss a suitable payment arrangement.  Payment plans can be set up via the BPoint service as an automatic direct debit on your account, a link will be sent to you after your plan has been approved to finalise this process.
