College Statements and reports

Reports will be distributed to students in Week 1, of Term 3 and as it is College policy not to distribute reports to families with outstanding accounts, I would ask that all accounts be paid on time so as to avoid any embarrassing moments. Families who may have difficulties in meeting accounts to contact our College office to discuss alternative arrangements. 

College statements were either emailed on 6th May or posted on 7th May to families as per their preferred distribution method.  If you did not receive your statement, please contact Mrs Jo Williams at the College office immediately.
