Student Resource Scheme

As a service to assist parents with the cost and resourcing of some educational resources, Southport State School and the P&C association have chosen to operate a Student Resource Scheme.
The purpose of the scheme is to provide the parent/caregiver with a cost effective and more economical alternative to purchasing required resources, and consumables from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the school’s bulk purchasing processes.
Please return the Student Resource Scheme Form to the Office at your earliest convenience.
