Duty of Care Policy (3)
Disputes and Complaints Policy 2016
Due to the climate of economic uncertainty and the large number of parents who indicated that they have had trouble affording School fees
in 2019, School
Council has determined to freeze Term fees
for 2020 at the 2019 rates.
Additionally we have introduced two discounted rates for Pensioner concession card holders (20% off Term fees) and Health Care Card holders (10% off Term fees). Those families who are entitled to a discounted rate should present their cards to the office to receive a discount in 2020.
We have also introduced differentiated levies for Stationary supplies and Excursions/Incursions to more accurately represent the costs incurred by each year group. Please note that discounts do not apply to levies.

$512/term plus once off levies of $25 to cover Stationary and $20 to cover incursions and excursions.
Total of $2093 per year without discounts.

Discounts available for 2nd and 3rd child enrolled and for early payment
If you have a second child attending the school, 25% is deducted from the fee, with a 50% discount for a third child.
The school also offers a discount of 5% off the student term fee, where the student term fees are paid for the whole year, prior to the commencement of the school year.
Invoicing and payment arrangements
Fee invoices will be sent to parents in the second week of term and payment should be made by week 3 unless an alternative arrangement has been made. Payment can be paid to the office or by online banking. Centrepay can be arranged by request.
Families experiencing financial difficulty are asked to contact the School as soon as possible to discuss their options, as a limited number of special arrangements for reduced tuition fees are available for families in difficult financial circumstances. This bursary relief will be negotiated on an individual basis and the outcomes of such discussions will be kept completely confidential.
Notice of withdrawal
Please note that one full term written notice is required if you intend to withdraw your child from the school or the next terms fees will be charged and payment required.
