If students are participating in excursions, payment should be made as soon as possible after the notification letter and permission form are issued by the class teacher but definitely by the due date, usually one week before the date of the excursion. As bus sizes and venues need to be confirmed, and teacher replacement arranged, no late payments are accepted.
If an excursion does not proceed or a student is sick on the day of the excursion, the following procedure applies:
A credit note is sent home with the student or in the mail advising that the excursion was cancelled. Usually credits can remain on the student account and be offset against future costs. A refund can also be processed and placed into a nominated bank account. In some circumstances only the venue component of the excursion may be refunded as the school has committed to pay the bus cost and teacher replacement irrespective of the number of students participating, whereas the venue should only charge for the number of students who participated.
In order to participate in excursions, the resource scheme must be paid in full.
