Compass Pay now Activated
Compass Pay is now up and running.
This gives parents the ability to now make payments online as well as give permission to attend organised activities.
Paper notices for all excursions/incursions will still be sent home for the time being and will be phased out towards end of the year. Only one format (paper or electronic) needs to be completed, however if the ‘due by’ date has expired - the online function will no longer be available. For parents not wanting to pay online, all the normal school payment options are still available.
Attached below are 'How To' Guides.
'How To' Make Payments - This function is for larger online payments such as Camps, School Fees, Booklists etc. A 'Course Confirmation/School Payments' notification should only appear on your parent portal home page if you have a payment required through this function. Payment Plans/Instalments are available through this process.
'How To' Give Consent/Permission - This function will be the one used more often and is for giving online permission for your child to attend an event. An 'Event Consent/Payment Required' notification will only appear on your parent portal home page if your child is participating in an excursion/event. When events are not included in the Excursion Payment Scheme or if you are not participating in the Excursion Payment Scheme - payments can be paid through the Event Consent link. If no payment option appears - no payment is required.
If you experience any technical issues with these processes or have any questions, please contact Brodie at the office on 9578 1327.
