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 $800 for 2017. 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 of Education and Child Development (refer to Education Act section 106A).
This means the whole $800 is compulsory.
The situation has not changed for families eligible for School Card (for more information phone 1800 672 758).
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 14 February 2017
2nd Instalment $270 - prior to 28 March 2017
3rd Instalment $260 - prior to 20 June 2017
If you have not commenced payment by 2nd Instalment date or have any outstanding invoices after 20 June 2017, these will be passed on to our debt collection agency, DECD Recovery Unit, to become part of the school’s debt collection process.
STUDENT IDENTIFICATION CARDS
ID cards are issued in the first few weeks; cards issued in 2016 are valid until 28 February 2017. 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 text books and books from the library. This card should be carried with students at all times.
FAMILIES ELIGIBLE FOR SCHOOL CARD CONCESSION
All School Card application forms for 2017 will be available from the school. Families must apply each and every year at each school as your circumstances and criteria may have changed. A copy of a School Card form will be enclosed for your convenience with the Statement at the start of 2017.
We are aware that starting back to school can stretch family finances to the limit. If you have special circumstances, or need further clarification, we urge you to contact Fran Millard (via email Fran.Millard456@schools.sa.edu.au) or refer to the instalment form which will accompany the invoice in January 2017.
The Building Fund is a great way to both assist the school in planning and developing building programs as well as being a Tax Deduction for families. In this age of progressive eTechnology and eBooks there is still one item that remains valuable as a reflection on their school year for students and that is the Year Book, so don’t forget to order your copy for 2017.
