Apply now for Back to School vouchers
15th December 2022
$150 BACK TO SCHOOL VOUCHERS
Parents of school students can now apply to get $150 (3 x $50) worth of back-to-school vouchers per eligible child.
I think this is a great initiative by the State Government and will help ease the cost of living pressures on a lot of local families.
All questions are answered on the link below, but here's a couple of FAQs answered:
3 x $50 vouchers are available for each eligible school student from K to Yr 12. (That's 6 x $50 vouchers for families with two eligible students, 9 x $50 vouchers for three kids etc)
Yes, caregivers can apply for the vouchers.
Children who are home schooled are also eligible.
Vouchers can be used for uniforms, shoes, bags, text books, even things like lunchboxes, but they can only be spent at participating businesses.
I know a lot of people buy uniforms through the schools and P&Cs etc. The vouchers can only be used in that instance if the school or P&C is a registered participating business. I know some locals are, but others still need to register. In those cases, you'll need to ask your school or P&C if they're going to participate and be able to accept the vouchers. All current participating businesses are listed on the link below.
