Project Funding Allocations

Funding for activities to enhance the educational outcomes for our students comes from the sale of Entertainment Memberships, as well as revenue sources such as the second hand book and uniform shops.


Entertainment Memberships

Proceeds from the sale of Entertainment Memberships go to fund the Board initiated Student Leadership Development Program. Feedback from students who have benefitted from the leadership program include:

  • The leadership program means alot to me because of the confidence it gave me, inspiring me to take on a variety of leadership roles thorught the year. The leadership activities have subjected me to new experiences which have helped me grow as a leader
  • We learnt at the conference that as young leaders, we need to begin making changes in the real world. We need to find solutions to probems and we need to work with others to put these solutions into action.
  • The motivating speeches and amazing presentation at the conference all impacted us greatly, causing everyone to come to grips with a long task that we as future leaders have ahead, and learning how to be a leader the world needs.

Second-hand Bookshop

Year 11 and 12 students are invited to bring in their textbooks and other items (such as class pads, study guides) for sale at the second hand bookshop.  Books are accepted on a consignment basis, with a 20% commission taken by the School Board.  Payment for all items sold will be made by cheque, by April each year.


Please note that due to the learning area requirements and the release of new edition books, not all your current books will be on the new booklist and may not be sold.
Books should be brought in as soon as possible so that we can determine what we can sell for you.  Your books will be priced at half to two thirds the price of a new book, depending on their condition.


Items for sale must be placed in a bag together with the completed bookshop consignment form and dropped off at the bookshop (preferred drop off point) or front office. The bookshop consignment form can be downloaded from the school website, or obtained from the front office, School Board office or bookshop.


Year 10 & Year 11 students are invited to visit the second hand bookshop to purchase your Year 11 and Year 12 booklist requirements. Many of the textbooks are half to two thirds the price of new textbooks, presenting substantial savings. Also available for purchase are second hand calculators and class pads, study guides, math-o-matts, and language dictionaries.
