East Doncaster Secondary College Council would like to thank you for your support of the College as we endeavour to provide the best possible education for your child.

In order to provide quality programs and a comfortable and efficient learning environment for our students, the College relies on strong support from the College community. The College Charges are designed to supplement the Government’s allocation to schools to provide materials and services. These charges enable us to enrich and extend the learning experiences of our students in each subject. Please find attached the explanatory Parent Payments Parent Letter and Parent Payment Policy.

2021 College Charges are made available for parents to pay on Compass. Parents/Guardians will also receive the College Charges and explanatory letter via the post.  Please note that there is no additional charge incurred if paying online via Compass.

For further information regarding our Parent Payments Policy, please refer to the attached documents.

Our Year 7 students will be required to purchase a laptop. When a student purchases a new device in Year 7, it is anticipated they will keep this until the end of Year 10 and purchase a new device for VCE. While some devices might last longer than this, devices over 4 years of age are likely to underperform, be unreliable and potentially impact student learning. The purchase of these devices is crucial to the learning program as students will access eBooks rather than an extensive number of expensive textbooks.

Please find further details of the 2021 Years 7-12 1 to 1 Digital Learning Program

Please note that new students enrolling in to the College from Years 8 to 12 also have the official EDSC school bag and IT configuration fee included in their College charges.

College charges are reviewed annually by the School College Council and are distributed and published in Term 3 for the following year.
