Payment Plans: In recognition of challenges for low-income families, Launceston Big Picture School would like to offer flexible payment options to assist parents/carers to budget for this cost – we can set up a weekly/fortnightly/monthly payment plans. Please discuss this with the School Business Manager.
STAS: Eligible parents/carers can also apply for financial assistance through the Department’s Student Assistance Scheme (STAS) which provides assistance for low income families towards the cost of levies. Complete the enclosed form and forward to firstname.lastname@example.org and if approved, you will be notified by the Department of Education’s Central Office. Applications for STAS close end of August.
The Smith Family: If you are not eligible for STAS, you may want to consider The Smith Family program (tel: 6326 7898) who may be able to offer some financial assistance toward payment of the levy invoice. The program is a national, independent children’s charity helping disadvantaged children to get the most out of their education.
