Prep is the first year of
school and provides the foundation for your child's education. It is compulsory
for Queensland children to undertake Prep prior to Year 1. Prep is a full-time program in
primary schools and has a defined curriculum. Children must be 5 years old
by 30 June in the year they start Prep. To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.

interview. Our Prep & Teddy Bear Orientation Day and Parent
Information Sessions will be held in November to support your induction to
Clover Hill State School. During this day the current Prep team and
Deputy Principals will inform you about the Prep programs on offer at our
school and the processes involved in preparing your child for a smooth
transition into the school environment. All families enrolled in Prep 2022 at Clover Hill State School are encouraged to come along. Further

The Student Resource Scheme
The Student Resource Scheme (SRS) is a user‐charging scheme operated by schools to provide parents with a mechanism to access individual student resources that are not funded by the government.
Government funding for schools does not extend to individual student resources and equipment for their personal use or consumption. Supply of these items, such as textbooks and personal laptops/iPads, is the responsibility of the parent.
The objective of the scheme is to provide parents a convenient and cost‐effective alternative to individual supply of resources for their students. Participation in the SRS is optional, and no obligation is placed on a parent to participate.
Terms and conditions for participating in the scheme are provided on the reverse side of the form. Information is also provided on the Textbook and Resource Allowance (TRA) where applicable.
This Participation Agreement Form applies for the duration of a student’s enrolment at the school, however parents who are participating in the scheme can choose to opt out from the SRS in future years by completing a new Participation Agreement Form. Any new Participation Agreement Form submitted annually and received by the school will supersede the previous form lodged.
Parents pay the annual participation fee in accordance with the selected payment arrangement. If a student joins the school mid‐year, a pro‐rata participation fee may apply.
Parents not participating in the scheme must provide their student with all items that would otherwise be provided by the scheme as detailed in the information provided by the school. Parents can choose to join the SRS in future years by completing a new Participation Agreement Form.
To assist schools in managing and administering the scheme, parents are requested to complete the Participation section of this form and return it to the school.
If parents have not completed and returned the form before the due date indicated by the school in the SRS Annual Parent Information documents, the school will take the view that the parent does not wish to participate.
