Parent Payments, Textbook lists & Stationery
Please see below for 2021 Parent Payments, Textbook lists and Stationery items for Years 7-12.
Hard copies of these are also available from the General Office.
Gisborne Secondary College’s Parent Supported Materials & Services is based on Department of Education and Training Guidelines and is designed to provide parents with a clear explanation of College Council’s reasons for seeking financial contributions from families.
Schools do not ask parents to pay for school operating costs (e.g. utility costs) or general and unspecified charges. Schools request payments from parents under three categories:
Essential Student Learning Items
Items and activities which the school deems essential for student learning.
Parents may choose to purchase essential items through the school or provide their own.
Items and activities that enhance or broaden the schooling experience of students and are offered in addition to the standard curriculum.
These are provided to students on a user-pays basis.
Voluntary contributions support the school to continue to be the best local school for all students and can be for general or specific purpose.
Students will not be disadvantaged in any way if parents do not make a contribution.
Textbook and Stationery Lists

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.

Stationery required is itemised on the stationery list from Office Choice Gisborne and if placing an order, it must be pre‐paid. Delivery or pickup arrangements are made directly with Office Choice.
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.

Local excursion consent
The purpose of this form is to obtain parent/carer consent for any and all local excursions during 2021 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.
