At Mansfield State High School we offer quality learning in a supportive environment. State schools do not charge teaching, facilities and administration costs; however, some fees are essential to support the delivery of education.
The User Pays Scheme comprises the subject fees and other levies which are invoiced to families at Mansfield State High School.
Payments that are invoiced to parents include:
- Choose Your Own Device (CYOD)
- subject fees
- annual general levy
- excursion, camp and field trip costs when not included in the subject fee
- Mansfield Activity Program for activities with a cost
- Travel costs for interschool sport
- Sports registration, tournament fees and travel costs
Mansfield State High School's P&C Association reviews and approves the fees each year.
