  • Fees will be invoiced at the start of each year, payable within the first week of Term 1, unless you have an
    approved payment plan.
  • Payment plans will cover the period February to November under one of the following arrangements:
    •  40 Weekly Payments (Fridays)
    • 20 Fortnightly Payments (Fridays)
    • 10 Monthly Payments (16th of the month)
    • 4 Term Payments (first Friday of each term)
  • A direct debit facility will be established upon enrolment and fees charged to a nominated credit card or savings account.
  • Alternative forms of payment are available by arrangement when an acceptable payment history has been
    established. Acceptable methods of payment include:
    • BPAY
    • credit card (0.9% surcharge applies)
    • debit card or
    • payment into the school’s bank account
  •  Late payers will be required to pay by direct debit only.
  • A late fee applies for families that are behind in their payment plan. The late fee will be as follows:
    • $50 per term for term payment plans or no payment plan
    • $20 per month for monthly payment plans
    • $10 per fortnight for fortnightly payment plans
    • $5 per week for weekly payment plans
  • Non‐payment of fees will result in a reminder and/or interview, and if not satisfactorily resolved, will result in the student forfeiting their place at the school.

If any students are withdrawn before the completion of Year 12, written notice of ten (10) teaching weeks is required. An in‐lieu of notice fee will be charged representing school fees for each week short of the 10 weeks’ notice. i.e., if a family gives 6 weeks’ notice, then they will be charged 4 weeks in school fees. If a family has existing bonds or Trust Fund with the school, these funds will be used to offset this in‐lieu of notice fee.

Textbooks, exercise books, school planners (from year three), excursions, sporting and camp fees are provided by the school. Additional costs may apply for some materials in TAS/VET subjects and sporting events beyond zone level. Families who participate in CIS and CSSA national sporting competitions are responsible for the payment of fees before participating in these events. Tuition Fees do not include any digital device required for the BYOD for Learning program. All additional payments are made to the Uniform Shop.

Families are encouraged to donate to the Building Fund. Donations to the Building Fund are fully tax deductible and assists the construction and maintenance of school buildings. An annual amount of $200 is the suggested contribution from each family.
