SRS Student Resource Scheme 2020

 
Student Resource Scheme (SRS) 2020
This letter includes important information about the SRS fees and inclusions for the 2020 SRS. If you choose to participate in the SRS in 2020 you will only need to fill out the attached Student Resource Scheme Participation form this year.  It will be assumed that for the remainder of your child's enrolment at Gilston State School you will continue to participate in the scheme and therefore not need to ever fill out another participation form. If you are a new parent to the school, this information will assist you in making a decision as to whether you wish to participate in the SRS. In future years, parents may opt out of the scheme by completing a new form.
 
What is provided by the Queensland Government?
The Queensland Government supports children’s education by providing funding for instruction, facilities, and administration. Funding for schools does not extend to individual student resources. The SRS helps parents to source these resources at lower rates due to its bulk buying power. Participating in the SRS also offers a convenient way for parents to source the items that their child needs for school, and ensures that all students have access to the same standard of resources.
 
The 2020 SRS fee includes student resources, text books, IT subscriptions, classroom photocopying, art and craft materials, consumables for Science / Technology and cooking materials.
