Given the current environment related to COVID-19, the Department is seeking ways to support schools, parents, and guardians through this period.
We are pleased to advise that the Secondary Assistance Scheme has been extended until the end of Term 2, 2020 with a new closure date of Friday, 3 July 2020. As such, the current concession card eligibility is also extended until 3 July 2020 (previously the concession card had to be eligible in Term 1).
It would be appreciated if the extension for the Secondary Assistance Scheme could be advertised as widely as possible, to ensure that all parents are aware of the allowances available.
Completed SAS application forms must be sent via post to:
Financial Planning and Resourcing
Department of Education
151 Royal Street
EAST PERTH WA 6004
Please ensure you retain a copy of the SAS application form and concession card for your school records.
If you have any questions regarding the information provided or require additional SAS application forms, please contact the Allowances Coordinator on 9264 4516 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
