Parent Voluntary Financial Contributions 2023 Information

Western Autistic School is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning, Parent Voluntary Financial Contributions 2023 Information attached.

Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard curriculum requirements and  all contributions are voluntary. Nevertheless, the ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students. The school makes every effort to keep the cost of items purchased and activities at a minimum and sources these products from the most economical supplier possible.

Classrooms in Action

The school offers the successful ‘Classrooms in Action’ mornings for parents and carers of our students.

These events provide an opportunity for parents to understand in more depth what and how we teach, as well as having the opportunity to visit and see the classrooms in action and also receive clarification around the Speech Pathology and Occupational Therapy service provided at WAS. The dates of the Classroom in Action events will be posted here in the future.
