This levy will be spent on items that a large number of students benefit from and that have not been budgeted for. Items can be requested via a google docs that is found on the Staff Portal. Students and staff can all ask for items to be placed on this list. The Leadership Team prioritises items, ensuring that all campuses have equity over time. Before items are purchased the wider community and the SC are informed to ensure transparency. If there is general agreement the item is then purchased. All items purchased from money raised by contributions of the voluntary levy are documented in the Annual Report.
