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.
As Pullenvale SS, we have a No Pay, No Go Policy.
The assigned account holder will receive a monthly debtor statement.
Statements may be paid online using BPOINT. This is the preferred and most efficient way to pay your statement as you will receive a transaction confirmation at the time of payment.
BPOINT information is displayed on the bottom of your invoice. Click on the BPOINT icon on each individual invoice to pay.
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.
Please note the school has implemented a NO PAY - NO GO policy in relation to excursion and extra-curricular activities.
Cash and cheque payments are accepted. Correct money is appreciated as change is not available. Eftpos facilities are also available at the office between 8am and 10am.
Please do not hesitate to call the Business Manager if there any difficulties as alternative arrangements can be arranged.
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.
Schools are able to charge a fee for:
- an educational service including materials and consumables not
defined as instruction, administration and facilities for the education of the
- an education service purchased from a provider other than the
school where the provider charges the school, and
- a specialised educational program.
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 making a written request for refund to the Business Manager firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Student Resource Scheme * Prep - Year 6
The Student Resource Scheme (Scheme) is designed to offset the cost to families of the provision of education resources associated with their child's education. These resources enhance the child's educational experience and assist them to fully engage with the curriculum.
The Scheme provides for the needs of all students in the specific year level together with specific goods and services consumed by your child which are related to individual subjects undertaken by the child. The Scheme provides parents with the opportunity to financially benefit from the School's bulk purchasing arrangements. The Scheme also enables teachers to differentiate the materials provided to students on a 'needs' basis.
The payment may be paid in a single payment, paid off over an agreed, negotiated period. Please see the Business Manager to make these confidential arrangements.
Parents who choose not to participate in the scheme will be responsible for providing their child with all the items that would otherwise be provided to the student by the scheme to enable the child to engage with the curriculum. As the Scheme operates for the benefit of participating families and is funded solely from participation fees, resources provided by the Scheme will not be issued to students whose parents choose not to participate in the Scheme.
The Scheme does not include: excursions, incursions, camps, extra-curricular activities, music equipment, uniform, specialist services
P&C voluntary contribution
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.
