Excursions and activities
Payment must be received by the due date outlined in the excursion/activity letter. Payment will not be accepted after this date, unless prior arrangements have been made with the Business Manager prior to the due date.
At Pullenvale SS, we have a No Pay, No Go Policy.
The assigned account holder will receive a monthly debtor statement.
Preferred Method - B-POINT
B-Point is an online payment accessible by clicking directly on the URL at the bottom left of the individual invoice.
The CRM and Invoice No. will be auto-populated with the relevant information.
Key information you will need to pay your invoice or statement online is:
* CRN (Client Reference Number) - your unique identification appears in the BPOINT box on the bottom of your statement
* Invoice Number (not the EQ ID) - each expense has an individual 5 digit invoice number which appears in the body of your statement in the second column ie between the Invoice Date and Invoice Reference. You will need to enter the individual invoice number for each expense to ensure your funds are allocated to the correct expense.
Cash and cheque payments are accepted. Correct money is appreciated as change is not available. Eftpos facilities are also available at the office, preferably between 8am and 10am.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Business Manager if there any difficulties as alternative arrangements can be arranged.
At Pullenvale Staet School, we are committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for students, staff and volunteers. This commitment includes the health and safety of staff and students when conducting curriculum activities in the school or in other locations.
School excursions and camps enhance a student's learning by providing opportunities for the student to participate in activities, both curriculum-related and recreational, outside the normal school routine. All planned school excursions are approved by the Principal and endorsed by the Parents and Citizens Association.
State schools are able to charge a fee for:
A school fee is directed to the purpose for which it is charged.
School fees for extra-curricular activities are calculated on a cost recovery only basis, according to the number of students who have indicated their attendance.
Participation of students in an extra-curricular activity is indicated through payment of the fee and provision of a permission form completed by the parent.
As the school budget cannot meet any shortfalls in funding for an extra-curricular activity due to the subsequent non-participation of a student who had previously indicated attendance of the activity, fees already paid for an extra-curricular activity may be refunded in full or in part or not at all, having regard to the associated expenses incurred and the circumstances of the non-participation.
If a parent wishes to apply for a refund due to their child's non-participation in an extra-curricular activity, they may do so by completing contacting the Business Manager email@example.com Where possible, the request should include the receipt relating to the payment for which a refund is being sought.
It is preferred that refunds be made as a credit against the student's account at the school, and used to offset any future charges.

Parents are invited to join the Voluntary Contribution Scheme. The Scheme is managed by the School. Previously these contributions were part of the Pullenvale State School Contribution Scheme. From 1 January 2011, the Voluntary Financial Contribution Scheme has been operated under the policy and guidelines of FNM-PR-023 Voluntary Financial Contributions.
The scheme is voluntary, however, please be aware that books, materials and consumables required under this scheme are not funded by school grants. The provision of this contribution ensures that well-resourced learning by our students remains our key focus.
