Payments

Payment of School Fees

When making payments for school fees such as Prep Requisites, Special Art, Reading Eggs, Swimming and Excursions etc. please be aware of the following:

  • Bank Transfers

When making direct debits into the school account, could you please include the student’s surname and initial, and if possible the last few digits of the Customer ID printed in the payment area on the invoice. If there is a permission slip regarding the direct debit payment you make, could you return the permission slip/invoice with the bank transfer details, i.e. the date you made the payment, etc. Also remember that if you are not a Commonwealth Bank customer, your bank transfer will take at least three working days to get to Moggill SS account, so if there is a deadline for an excursion, your child could be excluded if we have no information.

  • EFT/CASH/CHEQUE

If making a payment by EFT​, cash or cheque, could you please not cut the invoice up but return it in its entirety with the payment. Once we have processed your payment the invoice will be returned to your child in class with the receipt if you have not taken it yourself at our payment window.

  • Please wait for invoices to be issued

Often we receive transfers into the school account for fees not yet charged. Please wait till you receive an invoice or payment envelope for charges AND ensure that the payments you make add up to the amounts on the invoices your paying. Bulk excursion prepayments cannot be processed by our One School database. Thanks.

Refund Guidelines

At Moggill State School, we are committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for students, staff and volunteers. This commitment includes the health and safety of staff and students when conducting curriculum activities in the school or in other locations.

School excursions and camps enhance a student’s learning by providing opportunities for the student to participate in activities, both curriculum-related and recreational, outside the normal school routine. All planned school excursions are approved by the Principal and endorsed by the Parents and Citizens Association.

State schools are able to charge a fee for:

  • ​an educational service including materials and consumables not defined as instruction, administration and facilities for the education of the student

  • ​an education service purchased from a provider other than the school where the provider charges the school 

  • A specialised educational program.

A school fee is directed to the purpose for which it is charged.

School fees for extra-curricular activities are calculated on a cost recovery only basis, according to the number of students who have indicated their attendance.

Participation of students in an extra-curricular activity is indicated through payment of the fee and provision of a permission form completed by the parent.

As the school budget cannot meet any shortfalls in funding for an extra-curricular activity due to the subsequent non-participation of a student who had previously indicated attendance of the activity, fees already paid for an extra-curricular activity may be refunded in full or in part or not at all, having regard to the associated expenses incurred and the circumstances of the non-participation.

If a parent wishes to apply for a refund due to their child’s non-participation in an extra-curricular activity, they may do so by completing a Request for Refund form available from the school 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 school, and used to offset any future charges.
