Resource and textbook hire scheme

 

Prep to year 6 terms and conditions

 

In 2017, we are offering you a cost effective way to purchase textbooks, stationery and other resources for your child.

With today's curriculum, students need a large variety of textbooks and other resources.  If we were to ask you to provide what is required yearly, it could be very expensive for families.

  • If you wish to pay the total fee up front in 2016 please feel free to do so. 
  • If you wish to negotiate a different instalment payment plan, please contact the Business Services Manager at the office.
  • Instalments need to be up to date for students to receive their resources.
  • If you still have outstanding monies from previous years, you will need to contact the office and negotiate a payment plan for you to be eligible for the 2017 Scheme.
  • Payments can be made by cash, cheque, bankcard, Visa, MasterCard, and Eftpos via BPOINT www.bpoint.com.au/payments.dete.  A current invoice or statement is required to make payment. If you do not have a current invoice or statement, please contact our office.
  • Centrepay - the easy way to pay your bills and expenses.  Centrepay is a voluntary bill-paying service which is free for Centrelink customers.  Use Centrepay to arrange regular deductions from your Centrelink payments.  You can start or change a deduction at any time.  The quickest way to do it is through your Centrelink account online or contact our office for a form.
  • The Resource and Textbook Hire Scheme needs to be paid for in full before a student can participate in any extra curricular activities. Extra curricular activities include camps, sporting and cultural activities outside the normal curricular program.

 

Where there is genuine parental financial hardship, parents can discuss with the School Administration how they can meet their financial obligations by instalments throughout the school year or discuss alternative arrangements to accommodate special circumstances. 

Students transferring in/out during year:

  • If a student starts school after first term, the fee is reduced and charged according to the weeks attended in the school year.
  • If a student leaves school having paid the fee, a refund will be made, taking into account the weeks remaining in the school year.
