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 Student Resource Scheme
(SRS) provides parents with a convenient and cost-effective way to obtain/access educational resources that
their child needs for school. These resources supplement the school’s resources
and enhance students’ learning experience at school. Please refer to the documents on the right for details on your child's relevant year level.
The School has developed a
SRS for all curriculum consumables needed for your child’s entire year at
