$235 Education Program Allowance paid directly to the school

To be eligible for assistance parents or legal guardians must hold one of the following cards:

  • Centrelink Family Health Care Card

  • Veterans' Affairs Pensioner Card (blue card only)

The parent/guardian must be the holder of the card that is valid some time during Term 1. The only exception to this is when a student holds their own health care card and has been declared independent by Centrelink.

To receive assistance, parents must complete their application before 2 April. Application forms are available from the main office at the school or can be downloaded here.
