From the BUSINESS MANAGER'S DESK
Please find below some important information for families.
Please note that CBC St Kilda have commenced our planning for 2021 and confirming places for new students to start in Term 1, 2021. We are presuming, unless we have been advised otherwise, that all current students will be returning to the College in 2021.
If a student is not returning to the College in 2021, in line with the enrolment policy, one term’s notice in writing is required. If the notice is not received on time, one term’s tuition fees in lieu of notice will be charged. This requirement is clearly noted in the General Terms and Conditions of Enrolment which forms part of the Enrolment Form that parents/guardians signed when their child(ren) was enrolled.
To assist with our 2021 planning we ask you to advise the College by Friday 18th September 2020 if a student is not returning to the College in 2021. The notice should be addressed to the College Registrar and can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org It will be helpful to receive this notice as soon as possible as it will allow us to offer any vacant places to other students.
Please do not hesitate to contact the College Office if you have any concerns regarding this information or if you need further clarification.
