Parents will receive invoices/statements for all activities in which their child will be involved. These invoices will cover excursions, camps and class activities.
Full payment for individual activities must be received two weeks prior to the activity. However, the final payment date for camps will be deemed by the provider and is usually one month with the exception of the Year 6 Canberra excursion which can be eight weeks prior to departure.
No late payments will be accepted. Part payment may be made for camps however total payment must be finalized by the due date.
Our preferred payment method is BPOINT. The internet web link is http://www.bpoint.com.au/payments/dete will provide you with a method of paying school invoices securely from your own computer or smartphone.
Please ensure when using BPOINT you enter the CRN Number and Invoice Number (5 digits) both located on your invoices and statements. NB: Please do not enter the 10 digit Student ID Number as a reference.
You can also pay via EFTPOS, Cash, Money Order or Cheques payable to “Caloundra State School”.
We also offer Centrepay Deductions which can be arranged through the school office.
Direct Debit request forms are also available from the school office.
As at July 2020, our school will be cashless.
The school budget cannot meet any shortfalls in funding for an excursion or camp. The subsequent non-participation of a student who had previously paid for an excursion or school camp 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/carer wishes to apply for a refund due to their child’s non-participation in an excursion or camp activity, they may do so by completing a Request for Refund form available from the school office. Where possible, the request should include the receipt relating to the payment for which a refund is being sought. Refunds are not available for amount of $10.00 or less.
It is preferred that refunds be made as a credit against the student’s account at the school, and used for any cost in the future.
Under banking regulations, where a credit card has been used to make a payment, a refund is to be processed to that same credit card. A cash refund cannot be given on a payment by a credit card. Any refund of a payment by a credit card is to be by means of an EFTPOS refund transaction.
