Are there school fees to be paid?

We do not have set school fees, but we ask each family for a minimal donation each term to cover the cost of the additional activities which we bring into the school to support our learning programme.  
However, in year 7 and 8 to cover "tech" consumable costs for work undertaken off site a cost of $45.00 is expected to be paid by all participants  In addition there may be a transport cost linked to a trip that the class is undertaking.   
 
Books and pencils, do you sell them?

Yes we do.  Ask at reception for your child's stationary box; for 2016, the price across the whole school is $15.00.
Remember getting your child organised in this way is the first step to success for them! 

Does the school have a tuck shop?

We do not run a tuck shop and encourage parents to pack interesting and healthy lunch options for their child.  Sandwiches, fruit and vegetables provide a good balanced diet  Please ensure that your child has something to eat before they arrive at school and at both morning interval and lunch. Everyday the school provides each student with milk and a piece of fruit.  Children are NOT allowed to bring fizzy drink, large packets of chips, chocolate and lollies etc.  It is cheaper and more nutritious to provide a homemade lunch for children. We have supervised morning tea and lunch eating times; 10.20 a.m. /10.40 a.m. and 1.45 p.m. /2.45 p.m.

Where can I buy the school uniform?

The Glen Innes uniform is available from The Warehouse, Sylvia Park.  All children are required to wear the Glen Innes uniform to school; this should demonstrate a personal pride of Glen Innes School within the community and of their personal learning journey.

As a parent, how do I make an appointment to speak with the Principal?

Please call the school office on 528 3507 and make an appointment, or turn up on the day and the principal will try and speak with you as soon as is possible; we pride ourselves on an "open-door" policy.
