Option 2: 2 Instalments Due 9/4/2020 and 25/9/2020

BPay has proved to be an efficient way to pay your account and this works out to be very inexpensive for the school, with minimal bank fees and charges. The School Biller Code (280362) and your Unique Family Reference number is located on the bottom left of your statement.
Direct Debit payments through your savings or cheque account are also available and are also relatively inexpensive for the school. Please request a DD authority form from the school office.
Credit card (EFTPOS) payments cost the school quite a lot of money through merchant fees, so the school would prefer that families consider either BPay or direct debit as a first choice.
St Peter’s Primary School has over 500 families in the school. To assist me in understanding each family’s payment option for their individual fee account, please complete and return the St Peter’s Primary School 2020 Fee Option Advice Form by 28th February 2020.
EACH FAMILY MUST RETURN A FORM.
This form can also be downloaded using the following hyperlink: http://bit.ly/2SPW5Hm
If you have a Health Care Card, or Parenting Payment Single Card (and you are the sole parent responsible for paying school fees), please present your card to the office to sign the declaration form as you will be entitled to a reduction in Tuition Fees. Families who have already presented their current cards will have already received the HCC Discount on the Annual Statement.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of your fee account, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are experiencing financial difficulties and would like to discuss a payment plan option, please contact either myself or Mrs Pina Hutcheson, School Principal.

The St Peter’s Basketball Committee is looking for 2-3 new members to handover for the winter season. Registrations for this season will take place shortly and the current committee will assist with this handover and provide ongoing support.
The future of the St Peter’s Basketball program relies on parent involvement and without support and fulfillment of the committee roles, the school’s program will not be able to continue.
Please contact the committee on: email@example.com
St Peter’s Basketball Committtee
Unfortunately, Monday night’s delegates’ meeting wasn’t very successful in regards to discussions that took place surrounding Noranda’s new rule introduced for 2020 . The new rule means that registrations are now based on “players registering by birth year instead of school year.” It was hoped that there would be an understanding of the situation that exists in school clubs; however, the ruling that Noranda has made is final and registrations will therefore occur based on birth year.
Our role and commitment as a committee is to make sure all children who are interested in playing Netball are registered, put into a team accordingly and to answer and assist parents who have any questions or concerns.
This new rule affects all grades and may result in the formation of split teams depending on the number of players who have registered. For example – split teams for Years 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6 may need to be created, but again we cannot confirm this until we have all players registered and are then able to determine final numbers of players.
If an issue arises regarding insufficient players for a particular St Peter’s team, we will contact Noranda and they will make their decision accordingly. This will only be done when final numbers are registered by Friday 28th February. However, Noranda did indicate their plan to strongly adhere to the birth year rule – so the allocation of teams this year is completely out of our control.
We do hope that we can continue to represent our school spirit on and off the courts, and parents/guardians, please remember that we follow the TRUE values instilled at our school. St Peter’s Netball club supports an inclusive environment which is all about our children who love the sport, embracing our whole school community and remembering the importance of not excluding any child or parent.
We look forward to a season of fun and friendly competition with the support of the parents.
A reminder that registrations are open until Friday 28th February and unlike previous years –
late registrations cannot be accepted. Prompt payment is also appreciated.
