Brighton Beach Primary School is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of the 2024 Brighton Beach Primary School Parent Payment Contributions.
State Schools provide all students with free instruction to fulfil the requirements of the standard Victorian Curriculum. Your contributions ensure, that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students. We want to thank you for all your support.
Your choices in paying the Curriculum Contributions and Other Contributions enable the extensive learning programs and facilities upgrades that are ongoing at BBPS. Please know these contributions make a huge difference to our school.
In addition, the tax-deductible Building and Library Funds contribute to planned improvements we make to the learning spaces, the facilities, resources and equipment.
Some of our school improvement projects underway and for the future include:
The restoration of 'the yarning circle' and replacement of the boundary fence, landscaping and plantings in the senior play space.
The installation of an inclusive play space, with natural features and plantings at the front of the hall.
Adding STEAM as a specialist subject in 2023
Enacting key aspects of our Reconciliation Action Plan
A planned upgrade of technology hardware - new class sets of iPads and laptops.
Stage Four of our building master plan: the refurbishment of the three original heritage listed classrooms that front Windermere
The provision of increased shade for outdoor learning spaces and ongoing maintenance of the mod-grass oval and Exon soccer pitch.
Setting aside funds for the refurbishment of the hall, music room, art room and canteen (now 22 years on after opening in 2001)
For 2024, based on parental feedback, we will remain with the lump sum format of requesting payment for all Extra Curriculum Items & Activities i.e. incursions, excursions, swimming and sport. This will eliminate the ongoing requests for payment of each event throughout the year.
In particular, we thank you for all your involvement that supports fundraising or volunteering your time at the school. This is what makes our school, a community. In the face of constant changes regarding COVID guidelines, we look forward to our quest to build better pathways for our kids.
