Essential Education Items

School Stationary and Supplies

Courtenay Gardens Primary School is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of Courtenay Gardens Primary School’s parent payment contributions for 2022.


Please note we will NOT be conducting book collection day in 2022.

Once your payment has been received your child’s Essential Education Items will be delivered directly to their classroom.


Courtenay Gardens Primary School makes every effort to keep the cost of items and activities to a minimum and affordable for all parents. We continue to work with a range of suppliers to ensure we are getting the best value for money items that ensure all students have the same access to resources. Students will be working together throughout the year and it is important that students have the same quality, quantity and design.
