All children should have the opportunity to reach their full potential at school, regardless of their financial standing.

At BANSIC, we are committed to helping families afford the ever-increasing costs of primary and secondary education. BANSIC offers a Back to School program where eligible families can access financial assistance to help cover school costs, such as school books and uniform items.

The assistance available is $150 maximum for one child, and $500 maximum per family.

You must book an appointment at BANSIC to apply for Back to School financial assistance.

To be eligible to receive Back to School financial assistance from BANSIC:

  • You have to reside in postcodes 3079, 3081, 3084, and 3085 – and must have a Centrelink card verifying that address.
  • The child/children receiving support must be listed on the Centrelink card.
  • The child must be attending primary or secondary school – including Government, and non-Goverment schools.
  • You must bring your child’s school booklist or uniform list to the appointment.
