Secondary Assistance Scheme

The Western Australian Department of Education provides an annual allowance to eligible families to assist with secondary schooling costs. To be eligible, the parent/guardian must hold a Services Australia (Centrelink) or Veterans’ Affairs card that represents a statement of income for the family. The allowance consists of a $115 Clothing Allowance paid directly to the parent/guardian or school and a $235 Education Program Allowance paid directly to the school. Parents or guardians of students in Years 7–12 enrolled in a full-time secondary course at a Western Australian public school can apply. Eligible cards include Centrelink Health Care Card, Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card, and Veterans’ Affairs Pensioner Concession Card.
