Accounts and Finance
In early December each year, parents receive Charges and Voluntary Contributions for their student(s) for the upcoming year. Families are encouraged to make payment for their student’s Charges and Voluntary Contributions as soon as possible, with full payment finalised by the end of Term 1. Families will receive Reminder of Unpaid Billing Items in Terms 2 and 3 with a final reminder in Term 4. Charges outstanding will roll over to future years and may be referred to an outside agency. Students are encouraged to enrol in a satisfactory course which is within the family budget. Families experiencing financial difficulties/hardship are urged to make contact with the Finance Office as soon as possible.
Payment Plans are an option available to families and can be commenced immediately. Please complete and return to the Finance Office Willetton.SHS.Finance@education.wa.edu.au. We request plans are paid in full by the end of Semester 1.
The current receipting system, is limited to having only one person listed as the nominated fees biller. The nominated fees biller is the person responsible for co-ordinating payments.
Secondary Assistance in the form of financial subsidies is available to holders of Health Care and Pensioner Benefit cards who meet the eligibility criteria. Application forms will be available from the school at the commencement of the school year or by downloading from the school website. Applications close end of Term 1. Applications for secondary assistance must be made in person at the school by the cardholder as it is mandatory the cardholder’s signature is witnessed.
The Education Program Allowance ($235) is paid directly to the school and applied to voluntary contributions for Years 7-10. For those parents/guardians who elect to pay their Uniform Allowance ($115) to the school, these funds will be deducted from the compulsory charges first and then voluntary contributions (Years 7-10). For eligible students in Years 11 and 12, both Education Program Allowance and Uniform Allowance will be applied directly to compulsory charges.
From 2017 Willetton Senior High School will be making changes to the way we receive student payments. Students will place their payments in a secure mailbox attached to the finance office and only accessed by finance staff. Please ensure your child’s surname, initial, and tutor group is on the outside of the envelope, correct money and permission forms are enclosed. If correct money is not enclosed any credit will remain on the student’s account for future use. Receipts will not issued for payments $50 or under, unless specifically requested on the envelope. Parents are welcome to pay in person 8.00am - 3.30pm.
Qkr!™ as our preferred payment method. Qkr is a mobile payments platform that enables parents to order and pay for school items (charges and voluntary contributions, excursions, tours etc) directly from their smart phone/device or desktop PC.
