Parent Payments, Textbook lists & Stationery
Please see below for 2023 Parent Payments and 2023 Textbook lists and Stationery items for Years 7-12. Hard copies of these are also available from the College Reception.
We are looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of Gisborne Secondary College’s voluntary financial contributions for 2023.
Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian Curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary. Nevertheless, the ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students.
Schools can request contributions from parents under three categories:
These are voluntary financial contributions for curriculum items and activities which the school deems necessary for students to learn the curriculum.
Voluntary financial contributions for non-curricular items and activities that relate to the school’s functions and objectives.
Extra-curricular items and activities
Items and activities that enhance or broaden the schooling experience of students and are above and beyond what the school provides for free to deliver the curriculum. These are provided on a user-pays basis.
For more information please see the parent payment policy below.
Textbook and Stationery Lists
Order your books directly through the Campion portal by clicking here.
The College has arrangements with Campion Education Booksellers for families to purchase textbooks required on the booklists. Textbooks purchased through Campion will be delivered directly to your home.
This includes Edrolo resources and VCE novels that are sold each year in late November or early December, to enable VCE students to purchase English/Literature novels for reading during the Christmas vacation.
Office National – Order your Stationery directly through the Office National portal by clicking here.
Stationery required is itemised on the stationery list from Office National Gisborne. Delivery or pickup arrangements are made directly with Office National.
Financial Support for Families
Gisborne Secondary College understands that some families may experience financial difficulty and offers a range of support options including:
- The Camps, Sports and Excursion Fund (CSEF) and personalised payment plans.
For a confidential discussion about accessing these services, or if you would like to discuss alternative payment arrangements contact:

Local excursion consent
The purpose of this form is to obtain parent/carer consent for any and all local excursions during 2023 rather than requiring this on a case by case basis. Local excursions are excursions to locations within walking distance of the school and do not involve ‘Adventure Activities’ or bus travel.
Please complete the form below and return it to the College office to be placed on the student record.
