Payments of Accounts

Accounts are issued quarterly at the beginning of each Term and are emailed to the primary account holders email address.

Payment Methods

Our preferred payment method is Direct Debit. This can be from either a credit card or bank account (there is a separate form for each method) and payment options are as follows:

  • 10 equal monthly instalments commencing February 2017 and ending November 2017
  • 20 fortnightly instalments commencing February 2017 and concluding November 2017

Difficulty Paying

It is our policy to assist families who maybe experiencing difficulties in meeting fee obligations. By contacting the finance office as early as possible BEFORE THE DUE DATE, we will be in a position to offer some assistance. Communication with the school is important and we urge you to make contact with Financial Secretary or Principal as soon as possible, before the situation becomes more difficult.

In cases of extreme financial hardship, the school will consider granting a fee concession as per Brisbane Catholic Education guidelines. The concession applies only to the current year and the parent/carer must apply each year. Families experiencing difficulties may apply at any time during the year. However, fee concessions normally only apply to the remaining school terms as applicable. Generally concessions only apply to tuition fees.

A condition of any variation of fees, is that the applicant must complete a Direct Debit payment arrangement within 14 days of receiving an approved variation.

Leaving the School

When a family leaves the school, the Principal must be notified in writing at least one month prior to a student's last day of enrolment, or in the case of withdrawal at the end of the school year, by 1 October of the last year of enrolment. Failure to provide written notification may incur one term's school fees in lieu.
