2023 Student Resource Scheme and Book List Information
Each year, parents/carers are asked to provide the necessary class materials and resources for their child’s education. The Queensland Government supports students’ education by providing funding for:
Instruction, e.g. teachers
Facilities, e.g. buildings, amenities, furniture
Administration, e.g. staffing and resources to administer the operations of the school.
Funding does not extend to individual student resources such as textbooks, computer or musical equipment for personal use, and many items used/consumed by the student in the classroom. Supply of these items is the responsibility of parents.
The Gap SS 2023 Book List and SRS information contains important information about the requirements and options that are available for families to purchase or provide these, to ensure your student is equipped to commence school at The Gap State School in 2023.
For 2023, class requirements are separated into three lists, provided through:
- Book List and
- Student Resource Scheme (SRS) and
- Additional personal items - some additional personal items are required and are not included in the Book List and Student Resource Scheme, as are detailed in The Gap SS 2023 Book List and SRS letter. Items may include some that have been purchased by families already for the current year and can be reused in 2023.
An SRS Agreement Form
completed by a parent/caregiver is required for each enrolled student, indicating if they will participate in the SRS. Agreement forms are valid for the duration of enrolment with the option for families to change their participation status if preferred, by completing a new agreement form.
