School Costs and Fees Assistance



The cost of schooling can be a significant burden for many families, especially those who are struggling financially. Fortunately, there are several options available to students and families to help alleviate some of these costs. The State Schools’ Relief program provides financial assistance to families who are struggling to pay for school uniforms, shoes, books, and other items. The program is available to all families with children attending government schools in Victoria.

State Schools’ Relief is a non-profit organisation that has been providing support to families in need for over 80 years. The organisation works closely with schools to identify families who are experiencing financial hardship and provides them with the assistance they need to ensure their children can attend school without any barriers.

The program covers a wide range of expenses, including school uniforms, shoes, books, and other items that are required for school. Families who are eligible for the program can apply through their child’s school, and the application process is simple and straightforward.

The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund provides payments for eligible students to attend school camps, excursions, and sports and outdoor education programs. This allows students from lower income families to not miss out on the opportunities provided by physical extracurricular activities every year.

If you are a family in Victoria who is struggling to pay for school fees and expenses, you may be eligible for assistance through State Schools’ Relief. Contact your child’s school for more information on how to apply. For more information click here.
