Student Resource Hire Scheme

The executive principal and parents and citizens association of Helensvale State High School are proud to be able to extend to you the opportunity to take advantage of the school’s student resource scheme. This scheme is authorised to operate under the education (general provisions) act 2006 and department of education, training and employment policy.

The scheme’s major purpose is to provide an extremely cost effective and efficient strategy to parents and students which:

  • Reduces the heavy financial outlay for parents in providing a wide variety of student resources
  • Eliminates shopping for text books, novels and resources
  • Gives students access to a wide range of up-to-date resources
  • Supplements consumable resources which are used to ensure real life learning experiences for our students
  • Assists in maintaining a high level of technology across the school learning environment
  • Accommodates a range of school based and workplace programs to enhance student skill development

Our students will graduate from this school into a highly competitive environment and it is our goal to provide for our students the best possible outcome. When surveyed, parents and students demonstrated an exceptionally high level of support for the operation and resource base of this scheme.

It is timely to reflect that the government supplies the tuition fees and basic general foundations for the delivery of student curriculum programs. Please note, the student resource scheme fees have had the cost of the government textbook allowance deducted to reduce the total cost which parents are required to pay. However, as has always been the case, the cost of books, stationary and additional resources has been the responsibility of parents and students.

All monies raised through this scheme are expended directly on the students of the school on an annual basis.

Laptop Program

We are extremely pleased to be able to inform you of a fantastic opportunity for your year 7 to 12 child(ren) to be involved in our innovative 1 to 1 take-home laptop program (link to student resources). Participation in this program requires the students to have:

  • All school fees up to date
  • Returned the completed student laptop agreement to finance along with the minimum co-contribution payment for participation in the laptop program

Subject Levies

Subject levies are issued for relevant subjects to cover the cost of materials used in producing articles which will be taken home or consumed or for accreditation through certificate services. Levies must be paid in full before the student commences the subjects.
