Fees

October 2019, Version 7.0

Living Faith Lutheran Primary School is committed to continual improvement and maintenance of its program, facilities and resources, which have ongoing financial implications. At Living Faith, the fee structure reflects the curriculum, facilities and resources offered. Fees at Living Faith are:

1. Application Fee

A non-refundable application fee of $100 (GST inclusive) is payable upon lodgment of the Enrolment Application for each child.

2. Family Enrolment Confirmation Fee

A non-refundable Family Enrolment Confirmation Fee of $300 (GST inclusive) is payable once per family upon acceptance of an enrolment offer for the first child. Enrolment of subsequent children will not incur this charge. This must be paid when the completed enrolment documentation is returned to the school (usually within two weeks of offer to enrol).

3. Fees in Advance – New Prep Families

New families commencing in Prep are required to pay a further $400 fees in advance by the due date provided by the school in the offer of enrolment, which is typically 30 September in the year prior to commencing Prep. The $400 is automatically applied to the school fee account issued in January. If fees in advance are not received by the due date the place is offered to the next family on the waiting list. Should the place no longer be required written notice of withdrawal must be received by the school by the due date provided in the offer of enrolment, typically after 1 October, or the advance fee will be forfeited.

4. Enrolment Bond

For new families to the school a refundable Enrolment Bond of $500 per family is levied on the first fee statement issued. This is a once only fee payable when the first child commences at the school and fully refundable once the last child/sibling of the family finishes at the school, provided there are no outstanding fees and charges owing and the required notice period has been given. Refer to section 10 – Withdrawal of Students for further information.

For siblings of existing families who have previously paid either $200 or $400 a charge for the balance up to a maximum of $500 per family will be levied on the first fee statement following enrolment of the sibling. The $500 will be refunded when the last child in the family finishes at Living Faith provided there are no outstanding fees and charges owing and the required notice period has been given. Refer to section 10 – Withdrawal of Students for further information. SCHEDULE OF FEES 2020 Living Faith Lutheran Primary School
