6. Overseas Students Tuition Fees
PLC Sydney is registered by the NSW Board of Studies to accept overseas students (CRICOS Provider Code: 02280D). The Australian Government classifies an overseas student who is neither an Australian citizen nor one who holds an Australian Residency Visa, and who attends an Australian school, as an ‘Overseas Full Fee Paying Student’. The school does not receive government subsidies for such overseas students and thus these students must pay full fees.
Kindergarten to Year 2
Years 3 to 6
Years 7 to 10
Years 11 and 12
Overseas full fee paying students are also required to take out Overseas Student Health Cover prior to a Student Visa being granted.
7. Parents and Friends’ Association
Subscriptions to the Parents and Friends’ Association (P&F) are optional and encouraged.
8. Tax Deductible Donations
It is hoped that all families will support the ongoing development of the College through the contribution of tax-deductible donations to the Building Trust and Scholarship trust. These contributions are especially appreciated and essential for the future of the College. Suggested amount is $300 per semester.
9. Payment of Fees
Fees are payable as per the Conditions of Enrolment. No receipts are issued unless specifically requested. Please note that Year 12 Spring Semester fees MUST be paid by Week 1 of Term 3.
BPAY facilities are available for payment of Tuition and Boarding Fees.
Fees not paid by the due date may be subject to legal proceedings.
10. Tuition Fees in Advance Scheme
Parents may make provision for their daughter’s fees to be secured at an indexed fee rate. Please contact the Bursar for further information of this scheme.
NOTE: Fees are subject to alteration. Receipts will be issued for all non-electronic fee payments on request.
