Overview of Student Resource Scheme 2019
A student resource scheme enables a parent to enter into a written agreement with the school that, in return for payment of a specified annual participation fee, provides for the participating student's temporary use of presecibed resources and/or for the purchase by the parent of consumables and materials for the student's use.
The operation of the scheme is required to be supported annually by the Parents and Citizens' Association (P&C), and the scheme may be managed by the school or the P&C, but not by a third party unless approved by the Principal. The school and the P&C share decision-making and responsibility for the scheme.
Participation in the scheme is voluntary, and no obligation is placed on a parent to participate. A parent's decision to participate is based on consideration of the value afforded by the scheme. A parent who does not wish to join the scheme is responsible for providing the student with the items that would otherwise have been provided to the student by the scheme. The school must develop a process to cater for students who are not participating in the scheme to ensure the student is not educationally disadvantaged through non-participation.
Payment of the participation fee by the parent is a requirement for continued participation in the scheme. An unpaid fee will be subject to the school's debt recovery processes.
Booklists for the following year are distributed at the end of each year. The cost of each Year’s Bookpack varies depending on the curriculum requirements.
Each Year level's booklist can be found under Curriculum from the home page.
Other Contributions (Instrumental Music Program & Swimming Program)
These fees are required to be paid prior to the activity commencing.
We have several payment options available to make paying for school activities easy and convenient.
QParents - With QParents you are able to view your child’s current invoices and pay via the secure BPoint payment portal.
BPOINT - On each invoice generated by the school you will find BPOINT payment information on the bottom left hand corner of the invoice. You can complete a phone payment using credit/debit card via BPOINT 1300 631 073. Please quote CRN and invoice number from the BPOINT box on the invoice.
BPOINT Web Link - The BPOINT web link can be used by parents or other customers to make payments from their computers or smart phones. The web link is available on OneSchool Finance invoices and debtor statements. To make payments directly visit BPOINT web link. The Customer Reference Number (CRN) is validated and checked to ensure your school bank account receives the funds. The payment will not process if an incorrect CRN is used. Payments can be made through the QParents app (payment portal) or at the Money Collection Window.
Cash Collection Window - Our Cash Collection Window is open three mornings during the week from 8.30-10.30am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with payment options of cash, eftpos & cheque (all cheques payable to Beerwah State School).
Please ensure any cash payments being handed in to the office are in a sealed envelope with the child’s name and class clearly written on the envelope.
As we have a lot of activities at this time of year, one great way to stay ahead is to put credit on your student’s account to be used when invoices fall due. This can be done at the Cash Collection Window throughout the year.
Student Banking (Tuesday Mornings)
The school provides the opportunity for children to bank with the Commonwealth Savings Bank. Children bring money in their deposit book on Tuesday mornings and hand it in to the office. This is a deposit only service and is undertaken electronically by administration staff. New account applications may be left at the office for processing by the Caloundra branch of the bank. The school is paid a commission, which the school student council uses to fund some of their activities. We strongly encourage children to bank regularly.
