Parent Payments


Family financial contributions are essential in maintaining the quality of Newham Primary School’s wide-ranging academic and co-curricular programs for students. The School Council is conscious of the cost to parents of service and facilities provided by the school and we aim to keep the charges to a minimum.


We have provided an explanation of these charges to help you understand the costs we incur in providing you child’s education. Please see the individual year level fee schedules for 2021 below:
