School Fees are vital to the functioning of our school. However, we do our best to keep our fees as low as possible. A Fee Contract signed by both parents must be received prior to your child’s enrolment.
Mumbulla School expects school fees to be paid when they are due. If you experience difficulties in relation to payment of fees or charges, please contact the Business Manager or the Finance Officer prior to the due date.
Invoices will be sent to you at the start of each year. An option to pay by smaller instalments is sent out as a Periodic Payment Schedule (PPS) with your invoices. If you wish to take up this option, you will need to fill in the PPS and return it to the Accounts Department. If your fees have not been paid and you have not been in contact with the Finance Officer by Week 5 of Term 1, you may be charged an Administration fee of $25.
All material costs (e.g. pencils, paper, crayons) are included in your fees, as are the costs involved in excursions, camps and performances. There is also a levy to cover the costs involved in keeping our school clean and maintained. This levy is included in the fees for your first child and is spread out over the year’s fees.
The school has a policy for short-term fee relief which has been set up for families experiencing hardship. Fee relief applications are made with the Business Manager or Finance Officer who will help you to fill out the required form. Your application is then taken to a closed meeting of the Finance Group for consideration. Applications are treated confidentially and decisions will be communicated to the applicant in writing.
If your family will be away for a whole term please notify the Front Office staff. With prior notification, your term fee can be reduced by fifty per cent. Please give the school five weeks notice if you wish to withdraw your child/children or you will be charged the following term’s full fees.
If you withdraw your child/ren from the school, and later you wish to re-enrol, you will be asked to pay a $100 Re-registration fee.
