The School Card Scheme offers financial assistance with school fees (materials and services charges) for students attending government schools in that year.
Applications for the current year close in mid November. Applications for the new year open in mid January.
If your school fees (materials and services charges) are less than the School Card subsidy, the scheme can also help with other educational expenses such as uniform, camp and excursion costs.
For students at non-government schools, parents are encouraged to speak directly to the school about financial assistance.
Applications can be submitted online or you can request and submit an application to your school.
