College Fee Policy

The College fees are determined each year by the Provincial and Council of the Marist Brothers detailing tuition, boarding and other costs. The College expects that all fees are to be paid promptly by the due date as indicated on the account. In rare cases, which require evidence of actual financial over-burden, provision exists for extensions of time for payment or some consideration of amounts, but only when the Headmaster is accorded the courtesy of immediate contact from parents/guardians to explain circumstances in detail and to make alternative arrangements. Compassion for, and support of families in special circumstances, will always be a priority. It is unreasonable and unjust to other families however, to ignore fee accounts or to fail to contact the College promptly when problems affecting payment may arise. Enrolment may be terminated in the face of ongoing discourtesy or without the development of a sustainable repayment plan. For full details of the College Fees Policy please refer to the College Website - www.marash.qld.edu.au.

Withdrawal of Student / Change of Status

When a student is to be withdrawn from the College, or if an enrolment is cancelled by the Parents / Guardians, you are required to give the Headmaster one term’s notice, in writing, before the withdrawal or cancellation date. However, if a withdrawal is to be effective at the end of the College year, written notice must be given by the end of Term 3. Parents / Guardians who do not give such a period of notice will be liable to pay the College an amount equal to one term’s fees in lieu of such notice.

Discounts

A discount of 4% applies on Tuition Fees only if payment has been paid in full by 23 March, 2019.

For four (4) students or more the fees will be full fees for the oldest three (3) students and 100% discount on the tuition fee for each student after that.

This concession will apply regardless of whether boarder one (1), two (2) and/or three (3) in the family is a current or past boarding student of the College.

Sister currently attending boarding school: Boarder one (1) with no brother but has sister/s currently at boarding school will receive a 20% discount on boarding and tuition fees whilst the sister is at boarding school. Proof of sister’s continued enrolment at boarding school is required.
