Student resources


​​​​​​This page includes important information about the fees and inclusions for the Student Resource Scheme (SRS). If you choose to opt into the SRS from 2021, it is assumed that for the remainder of your child's enrolment, you will continue to participate in the scheme. If you are a new parent to the school, this information will assist you in deciding as to whether you wish to participate in the SRS. Parents may opt out of the scheme by completing a new form at the beginning of a school year.

What is provided by the Queensland Government?

The Queensland Government supports children’s education by providing funding for instruction (teachers), facilities (school grounds and buildings, internet), and administration (staff to run the school). Funding for schools does not extend to individual student resources such as online subscriptions, apps, equipment for personal use, and many items used by the student in the classroom.

The SRS helps parents to source these resources. The school can purchase resources at lower rates due to its bulk buying power. Participating in the SRS also offers a convenient way for parents to source the items that their child needs for school and ensures that all students have access to the same standard of resources.

  • Owned by the student – e.g. online applications - once provided, these items are retained by the student and used at their discretion.
  • Used in class – e.g. stationery, art supplies, material – these items will be used in class. Finished products that are created from these resources will generally come home with the student.

The Fee

Online programs, consumables including art and craft materials, reproduction costs relating to SRS. The Student Resource Scheme has been initiated by the Arundel State School Council and the scheme’s operation, resource inclusions and participation fees were approved by the Arundel State School P&C Association at the meeting held on 11 October 2021.

If you are not satisfied that the SRS fee represents good value for money based on the inclusions, you may choose not to participate. If this is the case and your child joined the scheme in 2021 please obtain another Participation Agreement Form from the office and select "NO" indicating that you no longer wish to participate. If you choose not to participate, you will be provided with a detailed list of resources that you will need to provide for your student.
