    Interesting....as my invoice states $470 with the $100credit from the government bringing it to $370....so which is correct???

    So if it’s $370 and we get the $100 off we should only be paying $270

    So we don't HAVE to pay the $115? What's the consequences if we don't?

    The $470 is made up of the legally recoverable amount of $355.00 (now $255) plus $115 the school wanted to charge extra, that didn't get voted through. The government has provided a $100 credit making that total come down to $370. From that $370 - The legally recoverable amount is only $255. The $115 extra is still being asked for / charged by the school as a 'voluntary' payment and is not leagally recoverable. You can opt to pay only $255.00 and that will be the school fee fully paid & complete. That is how I have interpreted the statement/Invoice from the school.

    Thank you Tammy for attempting to break it down. We understand there is some confusion around the Materials and Services charges and what is required. Vicki, our Finance Officer, is the best person to speak to if there are any further questions. Please call 8286 2900 and press 3 for finance.

    I’m not sure why i’m buying books? last year i bought everything on the list they used zero mainly there Laptops

    I purchased everything on this list last year and my then yr8 only used the graph book for maths. Nothing else was used. Even the portfolio for art wasn't needed (and even the cheap ones aren't really cheap). Apparently everything else was only done with their laptops (which I'm ok with).

    Same. Not doing it again. My daughter has ripped out the 2 pages she used in 1 book and using it this year.

    So are they going to use anything this year? Out of the list last year 3 books used and not even 3 pages in each used!

    What about primary school, do they need anything?

    Same. Just getting a graph book for math

    I’m so glad for all your comments! Am new to the school so was wondering how much is actually needed

    i thought the school fees changed to include all stationary… but my daughter didn’t use any of the books we got her last year….

    Hey guys so what would you recommend for us to buy year 7 student if non was used?

    And there me thinking my boy didn't do work in year 8 all not used 🤣

    We still have last years gear unused

    My year 7 son didn't use any of his books last year, everything was on laptop....

    Karrissa Moir

    Mandy Lee

    Yep same for my now year 8 son. I'll just get Christian to reuse those if he needs

    Another one whose child didn't use the stationery purchased. Really wish schools would realise parents don't have an endless supply of cash and only request what will actually be used.

    Are they allowed to put contact on there books my son really wants jurassic world but wasn't sure if they were allowed to

    basically just used their laptops. alot of books etc not used. bought for year 7 and 8 kids last year and I think they brought it all back. hahaha

    We would just like to clarify that the stationery list has been put together by the Head of Middle School based on the curriculum that has been set out. The 2023 stationery list has a few items that have been removed that were on the 2022 list. Last year the curriculum had been modified to adapt with the Covid restrictions and accommodate more online learning. If you have items left over from last year, that is great as you can use it for this year. It is recommended to have the items listed as required on hand for 2023.

    I’m not going to buy at I wasted so much money last year and my son used none and he throw it all in the bin

    Are we still able to collect online orders from the ELC? The shop is a bit out of the way now.

    Is there going to be more stock as stuff is always sold out and the kids get in trouble if they are not in school uniform

    Sandra Hyde

    The shop is so far from the school catchment now! We r in two wells and their are families that attend from middle beach and more! Can u order online and collect from school?

    Why on earth is it not located within the school complex itself? Surley accessibility to uniforms at the school direct should have been thought of back at consultation! Why would I want to drive to craigmore for uniforms for an Angle Vale based school. I just don't understand the logic that's gone into this.

    Fantastic!. We need to pop in to get some bigger sizes soon!. 🤗 I was considering getting them delivered as the school hours were tricky to work around. 🙃

    So my husband went to collect uniform first week of holidays from Craigmore and they said they aren’t doing it. So I’m just wondering where is our uniform?

    More time to collect yes but moving it up to Craigmore is a bit ridiculous honestly

    This is a ridiculous move. I'm all for having it open with more accessible hours for parents but moving it so far from the school makes absolutely no sense.

    Matt O'Brien

    Hi, I ordered uniform weeks ago and paid postage to have delivered to my door and still haven't received my order?

    I actually dont think Belgravia listened at all. There is room at the school to have a shop near the canteen, surely that would make more sense for most people. I understand that they service more than 1 school, but really thats their concern, not ours. Surely it is not too much to ask to have an onsite uniform shop? I dont think having to travel 20+kms is very fair with the other alternative having to pay extra for delivery. This is a public school, not private and not everyone has the ability to travel

    Craigmore shops!! What a joke

    Are orders that are currently awaiting pick up going there

    Hello, I ordered a hat on the 19th to be picked up from school, which I can collect from the shop, no issues there at all. However I haven’t received a confirmation email or anything but I have proof of payment if needed.

    Do you know when you will have stock of size 14 PE shorts? I’ve been trying to buy since November and my kids start this year so at the moment they have no shorts to wear.

    Sara Zoontjens

    Ordered a 14 got a 6 wow

    So the website for Belgravia says open Fridays until 4.30pm. Got there today at 2.25pm, and while it looked open the door was locked, sign still out saying open. As me and my kids knocked on the door they shut the roller shutters!! Shit customer service considering I can't even get a uniform at the school now.

    Rather disappointed. I ordered uniforms online to be delivered, I did this early to ensure we had uniforms, delivered late and now my order has not been filled. I am missing hats and tops? How am I meant to send my children to school? No uniform? Could someone contact me asap. Thank you

    Any consideration given to the inclusion unit being charged the same amount of fees? I outlined in my email that what the M&S charge covers, our kids don’t get access to much of those things.
