Payment of Fees

The school offers two methods only for paying fees. If you are unable to pay fees by the due date, it is essential that regular payments have commenced for the benefit of both Emmaus and families' financial planning.

 

Option 1

The payment of fees is made directly to the school office in full for the year within 30 days of the first invoice in term 1.

If the entire annual fees are paid in full by 28th February 2019 there will be a 5% discount available on the Tuition element of the fees.  This is in recognition of the assistance advance payment gives to the school’s cash flow. 

This discount is unavailable for fees which are already receiving discounts other than Sibling Discount.

Families in Financial Difficulties (including School Card eligibility)

Families eligible for school card or believing they may be eligible are asked to contact the School Office to check on the criteria or you may wish to visit the website at http://www.sa.gov.au/topics/education-skills-and-learning/financial-help-scholarships-and-grants/school-card-scheme/school-card-application-forms .

If you are eligible for school card we also offer you, in addition to school card, a fee remission of 40% on your Tuition fees.

 

The school will also receive enrolments from families who do not qualify for any government assistance and who may have difficulty in meeting the payment of the fees.  Fees are arranged in consultation prior to enrolling their children and all discussions and arrangements are in the strictest confidence.

Please note: where students are withddrawn from Emmaus Catholic School, a full term's notice in writing prior to the student's withdrawal must be given otherwise the school reserves the right to charge a full term's fee.

Absence; students who are absent from school for extended periods of time due to illness, injury or other reasons (eg travel or family commitments) are still liable for payment of full tuition fees for the period of their absence.
