Payment options


BPOINT is the school's preferred payment method for invoices. It is an automated payment system which provides a secure and efficient online method of payment for parents. BPOINT allows payments to be made against an invoice number and can be accessed via one of the following 3 options:

  1. Online payments


    • can be used by parents to make payments from their computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.
    • can be made using an invoice number and Customer Reference Number (CRN) are required to make a payment. The CRN can be found on the invoice.
    • will not process if an incorrect CRN is used.

    The school can assist you with invoice and CRN numbers if you do not have a copy.

Centrepay - the easy way to pay your bills and expenses. It is a voluntary bill-paying service that is free for Centrelink customers. Use Centrepay to arrange regular Deductions from your Centrelink payment. You can start or change a Deduction at any time. The quickest way to do it is through your Centrelink account online.

This school is registered with Centrelink to offer families the option of Centrepay. We can arrange for you to have payments made to the school from your fortnightly Centrelink payments for Resource Scheme Fees, subject fees, excursions and sporting costs.

You nominate how much you wish to have transferred each fortnight from your Centrelink payments, pensions or allowances (e.g. Newstart, Family/Parenting Allowance, Youth Allowance) before you receive it and when you wish the payment to commence and to cease. Centrelink will send you a confirmation letter, with all details of your payments.

This is a free service and Centrelink keeps the school up to date with your payments.

Note: If payments are for excursions or sporting costs, enough credit must be held at the time of the excursion or event.
