Support and resources

The Principal and Parents and Citizens Association of Pimpama State Secondary College are proud to extend to you the opportunity to take advantage of the Student Resource Scheme. 

The Student Resource Scheme is a cost effective option for parents to purchase the required items for their child’s schooling through reduced prices gained from the school’s bulk purchasing arrangements.  The scheme will supply students with access to:
  • Student Identification Card
  • Textbooks for each subject
  • Class sets of general reading books including prescribed novels
  • Administration of the scheme
  • Equipment hire – digital cameras (still/video), audio visual equipment, a wide range of industry standard software
  • Use of equipment, consumable materials and photocopies for a range of subjects across all year levels
  • A personal printing and photocopying allowance of 100 pages
  • Printed worksheets/handouts/notes and equipment prepared by teachers
  • Audio and video recordings
  • Materials for subjects where the instruction is extended through providing practical learning experiences in excess of materials provided by school grants
  • Software site licenses for school and home use

 The following items are NOT covered by the Student Resource Scheme:

  • College activities, such as excursions, camps and formals. Individual payments can be made for these activities as they occur.
  • College Photos
  • Elective Subject Levy and Excellence Program Levy
  • Stationery

Some elective subjects and Academy Programs will incur an additional levy that is not covered by the Student Resource Scheme.

These levies are in addition to the Government Textbook Allowance.


As per the College’s Finance Policy, should your account fall into arrears, students will not be permitted to attend extracurricular activities such as excursions, camps and school formal. Access to the BYOD and College Laptop Program may also be restricted. Parents/Guardians will be notified should their account fall into arrears. If after appropriate notification payment is not received, the matter will be sent to The Department of Education Debt Recovery Agency.


Parents/Guardians who do not wish to participate in the scheme should inform the finance office. Parents/Guardians not participating in the scheme will be expected to source and provide all the necessary textbooks, equipment and materials to fully participate in the program of learning.
The Department of Education Policy Register states:
A Parent is directly responsible for providing the student with textbooks and other resources for a student’s use while attending school.
