Tuition Fees – International Students


CRICOS No. 02943C



Background: The Covenant Christian School Council sets the annual tuition fees which are operational as of the first day of Term 1. Tuition fees are essential for the day-to-day operation of the School and are payable no later than the first week of each term.

Payments: Invoices are forwarded to families at the beginning of Term 1. Families may pay the tuition fees using any of the following options (in order of preference):

i) Direct debiting – payments are withdrawn on a weekly or fortnightly or monthly basis from their nominated account (no bank charges to parents).

ii) Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) – payments made by parents from their bank account directly to the School’s bank account. The School’s bank details may be obtained from the Office.

iii) Presenting cash payments to the Office Secretary in person so that the money can be receipted in their presence.
