Parent Contributions & Booklists

At Dohertys Creek P-9 College, we are committed to providing the very best education for all our students.

In Term 4, School Council reviews and determines the requested parent contributions for the coming year. Council is always mindful of finding the right balance between minimising the financial impact to families whilst ensuring that the College is able to continue to provide the excellent range of services, activities and resources that our students continue to enjoy. Without payments from our families, the school would not be able to deliver high-quality programs that the community deserves.

Parent contribution information is distributed to families during the first week of November each year. Our 2024 parent contribution and booklist information will be distributed in the coming weeks.

Family Support Options

Camps, Sports & Excursion Fund (CSEF)

The Victorian Government has again committed to providing eligible students with Camps, Sports & Excursion funds (CSEF). These funds are paid to the school to use towards excursions, incursions and camps for eligible students. To be eligible for the funding, a parent or legal guardian must be the holder of a current Healthcare card or Pension card, or be a temporary foster parent on the first day of Term 1 or Term 2. Parents who are eligible for CSEF will be required to complete a CSEF application form as early as possible in the New Year. Applications close at the end of Term 2, 2023.



Centrepay is a free bill paying service offered by Centrelink to help recipients of Centrelink payments arrange regular deductions for payment of ongoing expenses and regular bills (eg. Parent contributions). Interested parents are encouraged to speak with a member of the administration team in the General Office.
