School fees are calculated on a per annum basis.

The School’s Subject/Resources Levy meets the cost of providing incidental tuition costs which include:
Classroom resources (sets of class texts, necessary materials, etc), library facilities, computer and technology provision, sporting facilities, equipment and co-curricular activities, School diary & school magazine.
Please note that Years’ 7 to 12 Levy includes the provision for compulsory co-curricular activities and Learning Journeys (Camps).

Any additional charges will be added to the account at the time they are incurred.

Cobram AGS moves to BYODD (computers/tablets) in 2018:
Many families have indicated their preference to provide their own device in 2017, despite one being available through the school, therefore the school will move to a BYODD platform in 2018. Fee increases have been kept to an absolute minimum in recognition of the extra expense this will place on some families. Families who are concerned over the extra expense, especially of students from Year 4 2017 going into Year 5 2018, are encouraged to contact principal, Steve Gale, to discuss options going forward.


IMPORTANT: “School Fees” exclude the following additional charges:
•    Individual student texts or stationery in any Year Level
•    Optional camps and excursions
•    Optional Distance education subjects
•    Optional VCE/VET subjects offered by Off Campus Education Providers

Sibling Discounts:

Family discounts are applied to the total family fee amount as follows:
•    Two Children -  10%
•    Three Children – 20%
•    Four or more children – 30%

Early Payment Discount:
A discount of 5% is offered if school fees are paid in full for a complete year within fourteen (14) days of the commencement of Term One. Please note this discount applies to school fees only.

Buses
In addition to the government sponsored School Bus system detailed below, Cobram AGS has its own bus line. Daily bus travel, in our own coaches, is available for students from Numurkah and district, and also for students from Yarrawonga. Cost varies, up to $480 per student per annum. Contact the School Office for further details.

Payment of Accounts
In 2018 the full yearly fee will be charged as one invoice, issued in January 2018. We will then send out a quarterly statement showing the remaining balance. Term payments are expected to be paid by the first day of Term.
All accounts should be paid in full by 30th November. It is School policy that all fees be paid on a regular payment schedule. This can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or term by term.

In order to assist families we encourage payment via direct debit. This allows for regular payments to be made equally over the school year. Direct Debit request forms are available from the school office or the school website. Please note: If your current payment arrangement is via direct debit, a new form is required for each school year.
