Fee Payment

PAYMENT OF FEES AND ACCOUNTING PROCEDURES

Fee accounts will be forwarded early in Terms 1, 2 and 3.

Reminder notices will be sent to families if fees are not paid by the end of Week 7 of each billing term.

It is essential that the School collect fees in the terms in which they fall due.

Direct debit facilities are available for any family wishing to pay by this method. Appropriate forms are available from the school office.

PAYMENT OF FEES WHILE ABSENT FROM SCHOOL

Absence Due to Sickness:

A student who is absent from school due to sickness shall be charged full fees for the first three weeks absence. No further fees shall be charged for any further period of consecutive absence, provided that an application for fee reduction is supported by a doctor’s certificate. Normal family discounts shall apply to other members of the family attending regional schools.

  • For an absence up to 25 school days (half a term) full fees less the normal family discount shall apply.
  • For periods in excess of 25 school days, 50% of normal full fees shall be charged, less family discounts.

Absence While On Holidays:

The fees shall not be reduced for a student who is absent from school by reason of taking a holiday.
