DUE DATES AND PAYMENT OPTIONS
Joining the Shearwater School community is a commitment to the wellbeing of our School. Reliable income from fees is an essential part of this. Fees, levies and charges are invoiced at the beginning of each term, or upon enrolment, and invoices are emailed at the start of each new term.
Fees are payable by fortnightly deduction from a bank account or credit card. Parents/Carers with students commencing in 2020, are required to complete a PayWay form prior to February 8 2020 to authorise their payments. Each plan will be individually assessed and agreed upon before the regular amount is finalised. Existing PayWay customers will automatically roll over.
Families seeking an alternative payment method are required to provide details of their proposed payment schedule, including the reason for their request, in writing, to the School’s Fee Administrator, by February 8 2020.
COLLECTIONS POLICY FOR OUTSTANDING FEES
While every attempt will be made to come to a suitable payment plan, ongoing arrears will lead to formal recovery proceedings. The School further reserves the right to reverse fee discounts, as well as withdraw the enrolment of students, should the account remain unpaid.
Where the School incurs costs related to bank transactions, this cost will be passed on to parents. PayWay deductions dishonoured by the bank, will be reprocessed the following business day, unless an alternate arrangement is in place. It is imperative that you contact the School to avoid these charges and to make alternate arrangements.
WITHDRAWING YOUR CHILD
Parents must give a minimum of six weeks’ notice, via a Student Exit Form, or incur the equivalent amount of the tuition component, in lieu of notice. If a student is absent from School for any reason, fees are payable in full.
