Primary School teaches the standard curriculum to all students for free,
however, families are asked to pay for the Essential Educational Items that
help their child learn the standard curriculum. At Moolap Primary School, these Essential
Educational Items are ordered in bulk for students, which is the cost we pass
on to families.
