Payment of Fees

The Emmaus School Board has approved a change to the fee policy to apply from 2020. All families must set up a direct debit to pay fees in full by 31st December 2020. The only exception to this are families who choose to pay fees in full within 30 days of invoice. 

Below is a further explanation:

Option 1

If full payment cannot be made at the beginning of the year, all families will be required to set up a direct debit to pay all fees in full before end of calendar year.

Direct debits can be paid weekly, fortnightly, monthly and bi-annually and must be set up for fees to be paid in full by 31st December. Forms to set this up are available from the front office.

Option 2

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 29th February 2020 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 the criteria for 2020. Appropriate proof of eligibility will need to be presented.

Emmaus Catholic School in 2020 will also be offering support to families who are outside of these income limits.

2019 limits as follows and will be similar for 2020 - 

  30% 20%
1 Child $47,274 $57,274
2 Children $48,291 $58,291
3 Children $49,308 $59,308
4 Children $50,325 $60,325
5 Children $51,342 $61,342

Families not eligible for school card, but experiencing financial difficulty are asked to contact Vickie Richardson to discuss their situation.

All discussions and arrangements are in the strictest confidence.

Please note:

Where students are withdrawn from Emmaus Catholic School, a full term's notice in writing prior to the student's withdrawal must be given otherwise the school reserves the right to charge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.
