2018 SRS INFORMATION

The College's Student Resource Scheme (SRS) is not a voluntary scheme once a parent has indicated they wish to participate. Parents are directly responsible for providing their child with textbooks and other resources for use while attending school. As a service to assist parents with the cost of these educational resources, the College operates a student resource scheme. The purpose of the scheme is to provide parents with a cost effective alternative to purchasing textbooks, resources, consumables and / or materials from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the College’s bulk purchasing processes.

Before a student can be considered for participation in a non-compulsory College activity, a parent who has joined the scheme is expected to have fully paid the student resource scheme participation fee; or paid the student resource scheme participation fee up to and including the term in which the school activity takes place; or made regular on-going payments towards the student resource scheme annual participation fee by entering into a Payment Plan with the College. Those parents/caregivers who have entered into this agreement are under an obligation to pay any fees and/or surcharges in exchange for the use of certain resources. Some examples of non-compulsory College activities or programs are sports, recreational excursions, camps, Senior Jersey and the Year 12 College formal. Your support for our Student Resource Scheme is greatly appreciated.

Parents/Caregivers are reminded that payment for the 2018 SRS should be aligned to the current instalment schedule unless negotiated differently. Resources have been provided to students in good faith from parents indicating on the SRS Participation Agreement Form their intention to participate in the scheme. It is not viable for the College to provide this service if fees are left outstanding. The College operates the Student Resource Scheme with the endorsement of the P&C, to benefit all students and to reduce the cost to families of supplying the items required. Where a decision is made by a parent to join the scheme, they are obligated to pay the participation fee in accordance with the selected payment option on the Participation Agreement Form.

Parents experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to contact the Principal or Business Manager to discuss payment or resourcing options that may be available to accommodate their circumstances.​
Information Packs for 2018 are available: Year 7, Year 8, Year 9, Year 10, Year 11, Year 12.

REFUNDS
A College fee is directed to the purpose for which it is charged. College fees for excursions and camps are calculated on a cost recovery only basis, according to the number of students who have indicated their attendance. Participation of students in an excursion or camp is indicated through payment of the excursion or camp fee and provision of a permission form completed by the parent/carer.
 
As the College budget cannot meet any shortfalls in funding for an excursion or camp due to the subsequent nonparticipation of a student who had previously indicated attendance of the activity, fees already paid for an excursion or College 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 nonparticipation. Fees are calculated as close as possible to the expenses related directly to the excursion/incursion/camp but at times a deficit or surplus of funds can occur. With the support of the Colleges Parent and Citizens Association, in the event of this occurring where the amount is under $20.00 per student the funds will be redirected into the program area that the excursion/incursion/camp is linked to e.g. English, Maths etc; when there is a deficit the program area will cover the shortfall from their individual faculty budgets.
 
If a parent/carer wishes to apply for a refund due to their child’s nonparticipation in an excursion or camp activity prior to the cutoff date for refunds, they may do so by completing a Request for Refund form available from the College office. Where possible, the request should include the receipt relating to the payment for which a refund is being sought. It is preferred that refunds be made as a credit against the student’s account at the College, and used for any cost in the future.​​​​​​​​​​​​
