All excursions and in-school activities require a signed permission from a parent or caregiver to participate. Permission Forms will always be sent home via the student as a hard copy with a section to be returned to the classroom or specialist teacher. The Permission Form will always outline the details of the activity and any associated cost. There are times where there is no cost involved however permission is still required.
Where payment is required for an activity, an Invoice will be emailed home and also available through QParents. Unfortunately the Invoice and Permission Form have to be sent separately.
BPoint is the Education Department’s preferred form of payment and does not incur any bank fees or charges. There is a link at the bottom of all invoices that you can click through to pay via BPoint.
For any Excursion or In-House Activity/Performances the following process will always occur:
Step 1: Permission Letter
- Sent home as hard copy via the student;
- Complete Page 2 'Permission' and return to the classroom teacher or specialist teacher;
- Page 1 'Letter' will outline details of the Excursion/Activity/Performance and any associated cost and due date;
- If no permission is provided by parent/caregiver then the student cannot participate;
- If payment is not made by the Due Date no late payment will be accepted and your child will miss out on that activity.
Step 2: Invoice (if there is a payment required)
- Invoices are emailed to the parent/caregiver and also will become available through QParents App (if you have created an account);
- If payment is not made by the Due Date no late payments will be accepted and your child will miss out on that activity/excursion.
Unfortunately, the Invoice and Permission Letter have to be sent separately. If you receive an Invoice via email please follow up with your child as the Permission Letter should have been sent home via the teacher. If you have received the Permission Letter and no Invoice (if a cost is involved) please check your emails including ‘Junk Mail’.
We frequently remind parents/caregivers that 'PERMISSION IS NOT PAYMENT & PAYMENT IS NOT PERMISSION'.
Paying Invoices via BPoint:
The BPoint Biller Code is 1002534;
Every child/family has a unique CRN - Customer Reference Number;
Each Invoice is unique to the activity that the payment is for;
When paying for more than one child please use the CRN and Invoice issued for each child.
Example - A guest speaker comes to school to talk to all students. The cost is $5.00 per student. If you have three children in your family then you will receive three separate invoices. You will have to refer to the each individual invoice when making payment. Please follow these steps or your child could miss out on an activity you believe you have paid for.
A convenient, online parent portal (not to be confused with QSchools) that integrates with the school website and offers real-time notification, access to the latest school news and more. QParents allows parents to connect instantly with our school to access and manage their child’s student information, including:
- Viewing unpaid invoice details, payment history, and making payments online;
- Attendance and absence details, as well as the ability to notify the school of an absence;
- Academic report cards;
- Viewing and updating personal student details, including medical conditions and address;
- Enrolment details.
Statements will be sent via email at the end of every month. The statement will show any money outstanding on your child's account or in some instances there may also be a credit on your account. If you require more information please phone the Office.
Student Resource Scheme:
The objective of the scheme is to provide a convenient and cost-effective way for students to access the educational resources necessary to enhance their learning experience at school. The Department encourages parents to participate in the scheme. Participation in the SRS is optional, and no obligation is placed on a parent to participate. Participation is for the duration of your child’s enrolment at the school.
Student is new to the school.….
Parents are required to complete and return the SRS Participation Agreement Form when joining the scheme for the first time. If no participation form is received the school will take the view that the parent has chosen to opt out of the SRS. The parent is then required to provide the educational resources listed in the SRS for their child by the start of the school year. A parent can opt in or out of the scheme in subsequent years by completing another Participation Agreement Form.
Continuing student of the school…..
A parent’s participation or non-participation in the scheme will continue as per their previously completed Participation Agreement Form. A parent can opt in or out of the scheme in subsequent years by completing another Participation Agreement Form.
If a parent has opted out of the scheme the parent is required to provide the educational resources listed in the SRS for their child by the start of the school year.
