  • Year 7 students who live outside of the school zone may apply to enrol for the Norwood Morialta High School and can list their preference for this school on the Application to Enrol into Secondary School form (ED176), with detailed reasons for their preference.
  • The Starting Secondary School Information packs are available from the student’s government primary school.
  • Students attending a non-government primary school may obtain these packs from the secondary school.
  • The completed ED176 form is returned to your child’s government primary school by the date advised in the information pack.
  • All applications go through a formal process and students are allocated to secondary schools.

School Fees

The Norwood Morialta High School is committed to the provision of rich and diverse academic programs that meet the highest community expectations. The School is well aware of the range of financial circumstances of its families and seeks to strike a balance between affordability and the breadth and quality of its programs.

The Governing Council, which represents the parent body, has met and set the council approved contribution. This fee is carefully worked out to establish a base fee to provide an equitable curriculum. As parents/caregivers will realise, this is not an easy process and considerable time and effort is taken to ensure that we offer the most comprehensive curriculum for our students at the best possible cost.

The school fees are $810 for 2019. This is an increase of $5 on the 2018 fees. The school community was polled and voted for full collection of the school fees, which was approved by the Chief Executive Officer of the Department for Education (refer to Education Act section 106A).

This means the whole $810 is compulsory.

If families have not paid in full by the due date, we will assume you are making payments by regular instalments. A suggested schedule is detailed below:

1st Instalment $270            – prior to 15 February 2019
2nd Instalment $270           – prior to 19 March 2019
3rd Instalment $270            – prior to 8 May 2019

If you have not commenced payment by 2nd Instalment date or have any outstanding invoices after 8 May 2019, these will be passed on to our debt collection agency, DfE Recovery Unit, to become part of the school’s debt collection process.

STUDENT IDENTIFICATION CARDS

ID cards are issued in the first few weeks. ID cards issued in 2018 are valid until 28 February 2019. For other students school uniform is proof enough of student status for travel on buses. Once the new cards are issued the students will also use this as their identification when borrowing books and resources from the library. This card should be carried with students at all times.

FAMILIES ELIGIBLE FOR SCHOOL CARD CONCESSION
