Our preferred method of paying fees is by direct deposit to our bank account. We will no longer be accepting cash or cheques. Our bank details are:

Credit card payments can be made through the office and there will be a 1% surcharge. If you would like to have your term fees direct debited by us from your credit card on the due date each term, we will waive the 1% surcharge. Instalment payments made by direct debit by credit card and not settled by the Term Fee’s due date (i.e. week 2 of each term) will attract a 1% bank fee.
