Financial contributions and assistance

There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for.

Costs to consider include:

  • uniforms

  • school books and equipment

  • excursions

  • co-curricular activities.

Voluntary school contributions

Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.

Sporting Costs

These vary with the sport chosen. Costs to be met could include bus fares, court hire, green fees, balls etc. Parents and pupils should be aware of these when sporting choices are made.

Excursion Costs

Eden Marine High School organises many opportunities for students beyond the school gate. These excursions can incur costs to students, for example, for travel and accommodation. Every endeavour is made to keep these costs to a minimum.


The school provides textbooks for student use through government funds and school contributions. These are issued as necessary throughout the school year. Any book lost or damaged must be paid for. Replacements will not be issued until this is done.

Financial assistance

If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.

Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
