Parents are required to give one term’s notice, in writing, of withdrawal of a pupil from the school or the boards reserve the right to request one term’s payments (including boarding fees if applicable) in lieu thereof.

Interest at the current bank rates may be charged on overdue accounts and any debt collection recovery costs will be added to the amount owing.

Additional Costs

Camps: These are to be paid prior to departure from school. Girls attend a camp every year from Year 6 upwards. Approximate cost is $200 for Year 6 and 7 & $260 – Year 8.

Uniform items:  An invoice will be emailed to you.

Stationery:  In 2020, the Board of Trustees is paying for the items the school organises. This is a more efficient use of time.

School Photos: These are optional. You pay for what you order.

Please ensure you clearly identify your online payments – preferably the invoice number; otherwise, the child’s name and the purpose of the payment (uniform, stationery, camp etc.).

Referencing Payments

Please ensure you clearly identify your online payments: e.g. correct invoice number, child’s name, initial and surname and if you wish, reason for payment.
We often have parents telling us they have paid an invoice but we have no record of it because it has not been referenced or referenced incorrectly, so we don’t know who has paid it or what it is for.

Your attention to this would really help us.
