Each term an invoice will be sent home to all parents outlining all excursions and activities which incur a cost. A friendly reminder note is sent home to help parents remember when these payments are due.
If any parent ever has difficulties in paying for invoice items or activities we invite them to make an appointment to meet with the principal. There is student assistance which can be used to help.
$ Make a payment
MAKE ONLINE PAYMENTS VIA OUR SCHOOL WEBSITE
It is now possible for parents to make online payments to the school for amounts owing for students, via a secure payment page hosted by Westpac. Payments can be made using either, a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card. The payment page is accessed from the front page of the schools website by selecting $ Make a payment .
Items that can be paid include voluntary school contributions, excursions, sport and sales to students.
There is also a category called Other; this is to cover items not covered in the previous headings. Other can be used to make a complete payment of our school invoice or miscellaneous payments which arise throughout the term.
When you access the $ Make a payment you must enter:
- the student's name, and
- class and reference number OR
- the student's name and date of birth.
These details are entered each time you make a payment as student information is not held within the payment system. If making a family invoice payment please include each student name and class this covers. There are 5 payment lines available in Other to facilitate this request.
This is a secure payment system hosted by Westpac to ensure that your credit/debit card details are captured in a secure manner. These details are not passed back to the school.
You have the ability to check and change any details of the payment before the payment is processed. Receipts can be emailed and/or printed. Please note: payments made after 6.00pm will not be received at school the following day, but the next working day.
Details of the payments are passed daily to the school where they will be receipted against your child's account. As a receipt has been issued from the payment page a further receipt will not be issued by the school.
For any enquiries regarding the Online Payment process please contact the School Office.
There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for such as:
- school books and equipment
- extra-curricular activities.
Voluntary school contribution
At the start of each year we may ask for a voluntary school contribution to enhance our educational and sporting programs.
We try to keep any additional costs to a minimum and may be able to assist families who are having financial difficulty paying schooling costs.
