 School Fees

St Francis Xavier School is part of the Brisbane Catholic Education System. The system supports each school in the archdiocese in a variety of ways. One of the most significant is related to staffing. Teaching and support staff are located within our schools, based at supporting schools or at our Catholic Education Centre. Government grants subsidise staffing costs in part. The balance comes from school fees, school levies and school fundraising.

Payment Issues

Accounts in Arrears
Accounts are due and payable 7 days after issue of invoice. If for any reason the account cannot be settled by the due date, it is essential to contact the Administration Officer, Mr Stephen Clark to apply for fee support or contact the Principal.

In the case of non-payment by the due date and where an extension or variation has not been approved, the account is considered to be in arrears. The alternative collection process, which may result in referral to the commercial collection agency and/or legal action to recover debt, is instigated at this point. The family concerned will be liable for all debt recovery costs.

If an account remains in arrears and satisfactory formal arrangements to bring it up to date have not been made, or are not being kept, the school reserves the right to terminate the enrolment of family members, and if that situation exists at 30 November, to terminate the enrolment for the following year.

Other costs
Each family will be liable for all costs incurred for dishonoured cheques and/or bank debits and debt recovery costs associated with its school fees account.

Fee Support
Applications for fee support from families experiencing financial hardship will be considered.

To apply for fee support, please contact the Financial Assistant, for an application form. Any decision to grant support is made on the family’s assessed capacity to pay, based on the financial information supplied and nationally recognised income scales and the involvement of family members in the life of the school and parish communities. The granting of fee support arrangements is conditional on the family agreeing to the direct debit method of school fee payment.

Refunds Policy
Refunds of fees and charges are not applicable for pupil absences or non-participation in school curriculum activities other than in exceptional circumstances. In cases of prolonged absence eg temporary transfer or overseas trip, payment of fees is to be maintained for continued enrolment. Alternatively, re-enrolment would be subject to vacancies and any new and existing conditions and requirements.
