Confirmation of Enrolment Fee
A non-refundable fee of $50.00 per student will be charged when the enrolment of the student is confirmed. Upon commencement, the fee will be credited to the first Statement of Fees & Levies issued.
Confirmation of Enrolment Fees can be paid directly through the School website by clicking the Enrolment tab and selecting 'Fees Payment Online' or via the Parent Portal. Alternatively, payment can be made over the phone with the Finance and Administration Officer or in person at the school office.
In fairness to families who pay their school fees regularly and on time, our school will follow up all overdue school fee accounts.
A reminder statement/notice/letter will be issued within 7 days to any family who has not settled their school fee account by the due date where a payment plan or other arrangements are not in place.
If payment or a suitable response is not received within 7 days of the reminder statement, contact with the parent will be made via telephone, mail or email.
If after two weeks from this second reminder satisfactory arrangements have not been reached, the account may be sent to the school's Debt Collection agency. In serious cases, where there is clear capacity to pay outstanding fees, legal options may be pursued by the college.
All Agreed Payment Plans will be arranged to include a regular schedule that will clear the school fee account by the last day of the school year. Any extensions to an Agreed Payment Plan must be negotiated with the Principal.
A fee concession is available for eligible families. This eligibility is available on the basis of a just and equitable formula reflecting financial hardship and is consistent with Brisbane Catholic Education guidelines.
An Application or Concession on Fees form can be obtained by contacting the Principal. The granting of a fee concession is conditional on the family agreeing to the direct debit method (including Centrepay) of school fee payment. Fee concessions are reviewed annually. Under the conditions of an application for concession, families receiving concession will not be eligible to apply for or attend non-compulsory extra-curricular trips that are offered by the college.
