The Student Resource Scheme will be introduced to Everton Park State School in 2018 for Prep to Year 6, to ensure that all students have the necessary resources to support their educational requirements.  It is intended as a convenience to parents/caregivers to provide a more economical and streamlined option to purchasing consumables and textbooks each year.  The scheme has been fully endorsed by the Everton Park State School Parents and Citizens’ Association.  Details for the costs involved for the scheme are listed below.
