Payment of Fees

Fees are to be paid in advance, and payment is due for all contracted sessions even if your child is unable to attend their booked session.

The parent signing the clubs’ registration form is known as the ‘contracting parent’ and is responsible for payment of all fees.

If a parent is experiencing difficulty with payment of their fees, they should contact the school office staff as soon as possible. Our staff will treat all matters confidentially and arrange for discussions in private.

It is possible to pay fees via SIMS Pay (we do not take cash or cheque).
