P&F Levy

A P&F Levy is payable by each family ($120 in 2015) to fund projects.  This is a considerable figure but the P&F does not call on families for additional funding activities and is only payable once, even if you have children in both the Primary school and the College.  

 

Student Subsidies

Students who are selected to represent the Sunshine Coast and/or State/National sport teams (sport teams must be through the Queensland School Sports pathway) are invited to apply for a subsidy from the P&F as the costs of attending such events is high - $50 for Regional teams, $100 for State, national by negotiation.
