Information Update

Works Begin!

I am pleased to let you know that civil works for Wyndham Christian College will commence this week. In the first week of December AUSCO will deliver and install our modular classrooms. The modular classrooms will be used by the school whilst construction of the $3m permanent school building is undertaken. The students will move in to the new school buildings when the project is complete, about halfway through 2019. The modular classrooms are bright, new, airconditioned and similar in size and function to a new permanent classroom building.

 

You may see some coverage in the local press shortly!

School Fees

Some parents have been asking about the payment of school fees.

 

After much research and investigation, the College Board has approved a partnership with FACTS Management Company to help us manage our tuition payment program at Wyndham Christian College and Heatherton Christian College in 2019. We are excited to be working with them and are confident this program will offer greater efficiency and financial stability for the school while providing convenience to families. FACTS comes recommended to us from a number of other schools.

 

One of our primary goals this year is to concentrate our efforts on improving the business side of our organisation. By taking advantage of the security and convenience of payment processing and information technology offered by FACTS, we remain committed to this goal. 

 

You will realize these benefits by using FACTS for your tuition payment plan: https://factsmgt.com.au

  • Payment Dates:  You may choose either the (payment date(s) offered) of each month as your payment date.  Automatic payments can be made from credit cards.
  • Enrolling in FACTS: You will receive an invite from FACTS with information necessary to enrol. Included in the invite will be the website you will need to access.
  • Convenience & Security: Along with multiple payment plan options, your payments are processed securely via a Bank to Bank transaction.
  • Consumer Account: You may check your personal account or make payments online from the convenience of your home or office anytime.

 

Please note that there are no additional fees incurred for using FACTS to pay school fees. Families who choose to pay their school fees up front at the beginning of the year remain eligible for a 5% school fee discount through FACTS. Alternatively, school fee payments may be spread over the year in 2019 using FACTS in a manner that is convenient to your financial situation.

 

No action is required from you with regard to payment of school fees at the moment. A simple step by step plan for setting up your fee payment arrangement with FACTS will be emailed out to all Wyndham Christian College families in December.

 

We will also be on site at Wyndham Christian College in December (dates to be confirmed) to assist any families who would may need some personal assistance with setting the fee payment system up. An online booking system, similar to the enrolment booking system, will be emailed out to families later this month who would prefer personal assistance.

Parent Information Evening

While we have had information and orientation sessions for Prep students and their parents, we have not yet had the opportunity to do the same for parents of students in years 1 to 4.

 

Please mark Monday 10 December in your diary as this is the date of the first information session for parents with students commencing in 2019 in years 1 to 4.  More details to follow. The information session will be held in the evening beginning at 7.30pm.

 

We will also be holding a "Welcome to Wyndham' session late in January for the students in the same group where they will be able to meet their teachers.  Again more details to follow.

Uniforms

Wyndham Christian College families will receive an email this week from Rushford’s Schoolwear inviting you to a personal fitting for school uniforms at their shop in Werribee. Please look out for this email. In the unlikely event that you do not receive an email from Rushfords by the end of this week please email us at [email protected]

Thank You!
 

As the Executive Principal, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued loyalty and support to our School. We depend on your support in our efforts to provide the highest quality of education for your children at Wyndham Christian College. The enthusiasm and spirit shown in these formative days is very encouraging.

 

Yours sincerely
