2018 Contributions and Charges payment timeline
2018 Contributions and Charges Payment Timeline
Voluntary Contributions assist the college with the purchase of essential materials, services and facilities used by all students in the delivery of the compulsory educational program. The level of parent support makes a significant contribution to the enrichment of learning experiences for ALL students. We thank you in anticipation of your continued support in paying this component of your account.
As per the Comet Bay College 2018 Contributions and Charges Handbook, A DEPOSIT of 50% of the total cost of the student Elective Course/s is required by MONDAY 29 JANUARY 2018, with the total cost PAID IN FULL by 30 June 2018. (Elective Courses are those that your child chooses to enrol in as part of the Course Selection Process).
PAYMENT OF COMPULSORY CHARGES
Payment of these is compulsory. Please be aware of the following process undertaken by the college with respect to UNPAID COMPULSORY CHARGES:
- THREE account statements are posted out to all families prior to 2 July 2018.
- Where payment is still not made by MONDAY, 2 JULY 2018, a debt collection agency (Dun & Bradstreet) will be engaged to pursue recovery of Compulsory Charges directly from the parent.
- Outstanding charges are rolled over to the student’s record in the following year where applicable.
- Where parents with outstanding Compulsory Charges have failed to arrange and commit to a payment plan, the student may be removed from their chosen Elective course/s and be placed in a course that satisfies the requirements of the Curriculum Framework. Or, in the case where the unpaid Compulsory Charges cover the cost of materials for practical classes, the student will not be able to participate in the practical lessons and will have to complete theory work.
If you have not recently received an account statement, please contact our Billing Officer on 9553 8107 or via email: Tina.Brown@education.wa.edu.au
