Selecting your Payment Plan Online
In early February, you will receive an email requesting you log on to Schoolbox and select a payment plan for your annual fees.  You will be able to select between a self-administered or College administered payment plan, and can securely store your bank or credit card details to enable easy payment processing.  If you select a self-administered plan, you can pay via our online system or you can continue to use your current payment method such as BPAY. If you select the College to administer your payments, direct debits that match your selected payment plan will be automatically set up fo you.

The fees are due in full by 31 March, however, we are offering the following payment plans:

10 monthly instalments from 28 February to 30 November;
20 fortnightly instalments from late February to late November; or
40 weekly instalments from late February to late November.  

We continue to offer a 5% discount to families who pay in full by 31 March. 
 
These details will be available when you log in to select your payment plan in late January.

Building Contribution Fund
We still request that parents/guardians donate to our Building Fund each year. This can be paid online through the payment portal or by calling the College.  The College strongly encourages all families to donate to this important appeal, which provides funding for capital projects which may otherwise not be possible. The donation is fully tax deductible.
