From January next year, the Schoolkids Bonus will be automatically paid to families in two instalments each year – before terms one and three. It will replace the Education Tax Refund.
Lindsay MP David Bradbury said this will help with uniforms, books, school excursions, stationery, music lessons or sports registration fees.
Eligible families will receive $410 for children in primary school, and $820 for children in full-time secondary study.

Primary schools will be visited by EnviroMentors in the coming weeks in a program for primary schools run by Penrith Council.
The workshops will show children through games and quizzes the steps they can take to help keep Australia beautiful.
A record 120,000 primary school students from 800 NSW schools are expected to take part in the 2012 Premier’s Spelling Bee.
Premier Barry O’Farrell said the Spelling Bee gives students in years 3 to 6 an opportunity to improve their literacy skills by spelling in a fun and educational way.
There are two divisions in which students compete: a junior division for students in years 3 and 4, and a senior division for years 5 and 6.
