Payment of monies to the school office
If money is brought to school to pay for school activities it must be paid at the Cash Collection Window at the Administration Block. This office is open before school on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8.00 am to 12.00 pm for parents and before school 8.00 – 9.00 am and first break for students. The cash collection window is closed for all trading on Thursdays. Students are strongly advised to visit the Cash Collection Window as soon as they arrive at school to ensure they don’t carry large amounts of money around during the school day.

At Park Ridge State High School, we are committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for students, staff and volunteers. This commitment includes the health and safety of staff and students when conducting curriculum activities in the school or in other locations.
School excursions and camps enhance a student’s learning by providing opportunities for the student to participate in activities, both curriculum-related and recreational, outside the normal school routine. All planned school excursions are approved by the Principal and endorsed by the Parents and Citizens Association.
State schools are able to charge a fee for:
An educational service including materials and consumables not defined
as instruction, administration and facilities for the education of the student;
An education service purchased from a provider other than the school where the provider charges the school; and
A specialised educational program.
A school fee directed to the purpose for which it is charged.
School fees for excursions and camps calculated on a cost recovery only basis, according to the number of students who have indicated their attendance.
Participation of students in an excursion or camp is indicated through payment of the excursion or camp fee and provision of a permission form completed by the parent/ carer.
As the school budget cannot meet any shortfalls in funding for an excursion or camp due to the subsequent non-participation of a student who had previously indicated attendance of the activity, fees already paid for an excursion or school camp may be refunded in full or in part or not at all, having regard to the associated expenses incurred and the circumstances of the non-participation.
All refunds of $25.00 and under will be credited to the student’s account for future use. However, students who have school fees and accounts outstanding will have all refunds credited to the account to minimise the debt. Students who do not have any accounts outstanding will have refunds over $25.00 direct deposited into the nominated bank account as directed by the parent/caregiver.
