How to apply for a support package

Speak to your school to apply for help. You can talk about your situation with:

  • the school principal
  • assistant principal, or
  • a student welfare coordinator.

They will work out what you can receive and put in an application for you.

Parents Victoria encourages all parents/carers who need this assistance to talk to their school.
No student should miss out because they don't have access to essential equipment for their education.
