Donations and Course Contributions
Onslow College is committed to providing the best possible educational opportunities for our students, however the funding we receive from the Government is not enough.
Because of this we ask that parents invest in their children’s future by making a School Donation.The money received allows us to provide equipment and resources not covered by state funding but are important to the education we want to provide.
Donations may be eligible for tax credits and we have set it at what we believe is a very reasonable figure.
Donations for 2022
|1 student||$ 350.00|
|2 or more students||$ 500.00|
The Board has been in a difficult position of wanting to continue everything offered to students despite the loss of the revenue from our international students. To ensure that we can continue to offer the wide range of opportunities that we do, the Board has decided to raise the school donation to $350 per student and $500 per family. We thank you for your generous and continued support to Onslow College.
Your contribution has become an essential part of the College and I hope you will see the importance of making this donation.We are happy to make an automatic payment and time payment options available and respect that many people are facing tough financial time.
On behalf of everyone at Onslow College, thank you.
