Fees & Charges

Materials and Services Charges 2020


Henley High School Materials and Services Charges 2020: $780.00 + Subject Charges


The MSC is intended to cover the cost of those items and services deemed to be essential to the curriculum and are used or consumed by individual students during the course of their study for the calendar year.


The material and services charges are budgeted to cover approximately 50% of the expected cost of delivering the diverse curriculum provided by Henley High School. The other 50% will be covered by other funding


A major component of the charge covers curriculum/ subject supplies and services required to meet the essential cost of the course across all subject areas e.g Art, Science, Home Economics, PE and Tech Studies


Courses can vary in cost depending on projects/ material provided and where applicable levies will be charged for materials that are required in addition to the basic materials normally used. e.g Oak wood instead of Pine.


Costs for some items such as elective larger school projects and some excursions that are beyond the allowances included as part of the core curriculum, will need to be paid for as required and are determined as “other charges” as per DECD instruction.


Our budget for curriculum consumables and resources will be in line with the funding we receive from our MSC charges. Every subject area is automatically allocated consumables and resources funding to cover these expenses.
