SCHOOL FEES INFORMATION FOR 2016
1. 2016 SCHOOL FEES
The School Board has approved the school fees for 2016. The table below details the Tuition and Technology Levy (where appropriate) for 2016. For more information on the Technology Levy please read the 2015 High School Student Laptop Program, Frequently Asked Questions.
The tuition fees are all inclusive – they include the compulsory activities such as: subject costs (e.g. home economics, woodwork); interschool sporting arrangements; camps; excursions and textbooks.
Where students commence during an invoicing month, it is expected that the parents will pay the full fees for that month. For example, Term 3 commences around the middle of July, and parents of new students will be invoiced the full amount for the month of July.
Toowoomba Christian College require fees to be paid on time. This is critical in assisting the College to maintain the excellent and comprehensive education we provide to your children.

5. TEXT BOOK HIRE

8. TERMINATION FEE
Students departing during the school year
The school expects at least one term's notice in writing of a student's departure date. Failure to meet this obligation will most likely mean that the fees for the next term will be charged. The decision on this payment will be at the discretion of the School Board.
Students departing at the end of the school year
The school expects notice in writing before the end of Term 3 if a student is leaving at the end of the school year. Failure to meet this obligation will most likely mean that the fees for the first term of the following year will be charged as plans for the next year will be in place by then. The decision on this payment will be at the discretion of the School Board.
