Payment of Excursion Levy

The annual excursion levy remains at $100 per student

The levy covers all excursion and incursions that are conducted throughout the year. If for any reason an excursion is planned that is not covered by the levy this will be clearly communicated before it occurs. Whilst excursions are not an essential part of the curriculum they are planned to enhance the learning program. Any levy that has not been paid by the end of Term 1 will result in the student not attending excursions/incursions.

Where amounts remain outstanding at the end of a current year or earlier, a student will not be allowed to attend excursions/incursion this year  without full payment being made.
