Cairns State High School operates a Student Resource Scheme (SRS) to lower the cost of providing textbooks, consumables and other personal resources for students. The voluntary scheme is endorsed by the P&C.

SRS general charges (not including subject specific charges) are as follows:

Text Book and Resource Allowance:

  • Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 - $123
  • Year 11 & 12 - $266 

Resource Hire Charges:

  • ​Years 7, 8 and 9 - $520
  • Year 10 - $600
  • Years 11 and 12 - $600 

International Baccalaureate Program Diploma (IBDP) - $2,233.55 per year and is in addition to other year level fees and charges.

There may also be additional charges for subjects that have high consumable costs or are non–compulsory. 

The SRS invoices are sent out in mid-January. Invoices for subjects that attract an additional charge are sent home in late February and payment in full is requested to be made by the end of Term 1, or a payment plan be entered into.
