Booklists

The Student Resource Scheme was introduced to Everton Park State School in 2018 for Prep to year 6 to ensure that all students had the necessary resources to support their educational requirements.  It is a convenience to parents/caregivers as it provides a more economical and streamlined option for 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. 
 
The scheme will operate at this school in 2019 under the policy and guidelines of Education Queensland.  Parents wishing to take up the offer to participate in the scheme pay an annual flat fee and sign an agreement to comply with the conditions of the scheme.
 
While membership of this scheme is not compulsory, the school and P&C encourage your participation.  Full participation rates offer the most benefits to parents, teachers and the learning experiences for the students.
