Year level camps are charged to the account holder. Optional camps/activities are advised in advance and charged separately.

Optional curriculum enrichment programs and fees are listed in detail in the Co-Curricular Handbook on our handbooks page.

 All new students will need to make an appointment with the Uniform Shop before commencement. For more information visit the Lauriston Uniform Shop page.

Second-hand uniform items can be purchased from the Lauriston Parents' Association Second Hand Uniform Shop.


Lauriston operates two laptop programs:

  • Year 6 – Year 9
  • Year 10 – Year 12

Students studying at Lauriston in these year levels will need to purchase a laptop as specified by the School. Information advising of computer specifications and purchase options is distributed to parents in Term 4 each year.

It is a requirement of enrolment that each student’s laptop is compatible with Lauriston’s specific software. Laptops brought from overseas are likely to be installed with different software to that required by Lauriston. If it is found that a student’s laptop is not compatible with Lauriston’s specific software a charge will be levied to have the required software installed by Lauriston’s IT Department.
