The Territory Labor Government is again providing every Territory child from preschool to year 12 with $150 to assist with the cost of returning to school in 2021.
The subsidy can be used to go towards educational items or services at the school a child is enrolled at.
All children enrolled in a Northern Territory Government, or non-government school or preschool are eligible for the $150 entitlement, which is redeemed through your school.
The $150 may be used to contribute towards purchasing uniforms, stationery, school photos, educational resources or to cover the costs of excursions.
Children in transition to Year 12 can access the subsidy in Term 1, and the entitlement must be used by the end of Term 1, 2021.
For pre-schoolers, the $150 payment is available throughout the year but is only valid until the end of the first term in which they first enrol.
