Whilst the cost of providing instruction, administration and
facilities for the education of a student at a state school is met by
the State, a parent/guardian is directly responsible for
providing the student with textbooks and other resources for a student's
use while attending school.
As a service to assist parents/guardians with the cost of these
educational resources, Upper Coomera State College has chosen to operate
a Student Resource Scheme (SRS). The SRS is endorsed by the
P&C and is operated by the college under Education
The purpose of the SRS is to provide parents/guardians with a cost
effective alternative to purchasing textbooks, resources, consumables
and/or materials from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the
school's bulk purchasing processes.
A SRS enables a parent/guardian to enter into a
written agreement with the college that, in return for payment of a
specified annual participation fee, provides for the participating
student's temporary use of prescribed textbooks and other resources
and/or for the purchase of consumables and materials for the student's
The scheme is not used to raise funds for other purposes. Participation fees are only used for purchasing student resources.
Participation in the scheme is voluntary,
and no obligation is placed on a parent/guardian to participate. A
parent/guardian's decision to participate is based on consideration of
the value afforded by the scheme.
