Financial Assistance for Families

Parent Payments are reviewed annually by School Council and all efforts are made to ensure that costs are kept to a minimum.

Newham Primary School offers a range of flexible payment options and assistance programs to all families to help with the cost of essential and optional educational items.


If any parent/guardian hold a valid, means-tested health care card then they are eligible to receive the Department's CSEF funding.


An annual payment of $125.00 per student will be placed on the eligible family's school account to help pay for any

Camps, Excursions or Sporting activities.
