The Department of Education's Secondary Assistance Scheme is intended to provide assistance to secondary students in meeting the costs of books and uniforms and includes eligible home-educated students. To be eligible for the allowance the parent/guardian must hold a Centrelink Health Care Card, a Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card or a Veterans’ Affairs Pensioner Concession Card that represents a statement of income for the family.

The Secondary Assistance Scheme comprises an Education Program Allowance which is paid to the school, and a Clothing Allowance that can be paid to the school or the parent.

Application is made by the parent or guardian for student/s registered for study in the secondary years (Years 7 to 12). 

Application forms are available from Student Services.
