Family Capital Donation

School families are invited annually to make a $400 per family donation to the Lakeside College Building Fund. Such donations are tax deductible and support the College’s ongoing Capital Development Program. The College Council looks forward to continued wholehearted support for this program. Each of the four instalment notices will include a request for a $100 donation.

Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF):

The CSEF is a Victorian government allowance provided to assist low‐income families, particularly those with Health Care Cards (HCC) or Pension Cards (including students 16+ with their own HCC), with the costs of camps, sports and excursions. The allowance is applied to your account as a credit. The allowance is $125 per primary student or $225 per secondary student. Applications need to be made by parents through the school. Information regarding eligibility, closing dates and application forms are attached.

Payment of Fees

Fees are payable either:

  • in four instalments, on the 14th day from the start of each school term (fee invoices are raised prior to the commencement of each school term), or
  • by direct debit in 11 monthly or 22 fortnightly instalments, (January to November inclusive). A Direct Debit form authorising deductions from a nominated Bank or Credit Card account is required for this method of payment.

Families who elect to pay by invoice can do so by cash, cheque, credit card (Visa or Mastercard only) or BPay.

Note: Only the duly authorised Direct Debit method is able to be processed monthly or fortnightly. All other payment methods are due and payable 14 days from invoice date.

Should parents require an extension of time to pay fees, or require assistance with fees due to exceptional circumstances, a confidential submission should be made to the Business Manager, prior to the due date for payment of the invoice or processing of a direct debit.

Late Payment of Fees

Parents of students at Lakeside College are responsible for and are required to pay the reasonable costs and expenses incidental to and arising out of late payment of fees.

These costs and expenses include, but are not limited to:
(a)  debt collection costs incurred by the College; and
(b) any administrative expenses incurred by the College or any third party agents engaged by the College.

When these costs are incurred by the College, they will be passed on to the appropriate family.

Withdrawal of Student

Parents/guardians intending to withdraw a student are required to inform the Principal in writing, at least one full term in advance, otherwise a term’s fees may be payable due to lack of notice.  Notice of withdrawal for the following school year must be received before the commencement of Term 4 of the prior year or a term’s fees may be payable due to lack of notice.
