School Levy Relief for 2020
26 March 2020
Today the Tasmanian Government has announced there will be school levy relief for all parents/carers in Tasmanian Government schools.
What does this mean for parents/carers?
If you have paid the 2020 school levy payments you will be reimbursed directly from the Department of Education.
If you had not yet paid your child’s levy payment you will not be required to do so. Similarly, if you are making instalment payments these can now stop.
We will be aiming to have the majority of refunds provided to parents by the end of April with any balance shortly thereafter. The refunds will be provided via a cheque delivered in the post.
Any payments related to activities, camps, interstate or overseas trips will continue to be reimbursed, if this has not already occurred.
This process will be managed directly between the Department with parents and carers. We ask that you do not contact the school office in regards to this matter, in this current climate our school staff are under enormous pressure to look after the wellbeing of staff and students.
This action will not have an impact on the funding that is available for schools.
We realise that many families are feeling worried and have been effected greatly by COVID-19. Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to look after our school community.
