Resource scheme


The Student Consumables & Resources Scheme has been implemented into Samford State School to ensure that all students have the necessary resources to support their educational requirements. It is also intended as a convenience to parents/caregivers to provide a more economical option to purchasing consumables and textbooks each year. This scheme has been fully endorsed by the Samford State School Parents and Citizens’ Association.

The Consumables & Resources Scheme operates at this school under the policy and guidelines of Education Queensland. Parents wishing to take up the offer to participate in the scheme pay an annual flat fee and sign an agreement to comply with the conditions of the scheme.

While membership of this scheme is not compulsory, the school and P&C encourage your participation. Full participation rates offer the most benefits to parents, teachers and the learning experiences for students.
