GENESIS CHRISTIAN COLLEGE WITHDRAWAL OF ENROLMENT POLICY
Notice of a student’s withdrawal of enrolment from the College must be provided in writing. The College cannot accept a verbal notice as an official notice of withdrawal. A Notice of Withdrawal form or written communication, of the intention to withdraw a student’s enrolment from the College needs to be provided by the parent or guardian and sent to the Principal according to the notification periods.
Notification Periods - Withdrawal DURING the school year (notice: one calendar month)
One month’s notice in writing is required if a student’s enrolment is to be withdrawn during the school year. For example, if a parent plans to withdraw a student and intends to leave at the end of Term 2 – Notice of Withdrawal must be provided one calendar month before the school close (e.g. School close 25 June - Notice of Withdrawal on/before 25 May). In order to meet attendance requirements, it is necessary for the student to be in full attendance during the month that notice has been given until the last day of attendance as specified.
Notification Periods - Withdrawing at the END of the school year (notice: one term)
One term’s notice in writing is required if a student’s enrolment is to be withdrawn at the end of the school year (If a student is not returning to Genesis the following school year*). For example, if a parent plans to withdraw a student and intends to leave at the end of the school year – Notice of Withdrawal must be provided on or before the last day of school of Term 3.
* excludes students completing Year 12 and graduating from senior schooling.
Fee in Lieu of Sufficient Notice
Failure to provide written notice for the applicable notification periods, may incur a late penalty equal to one term’s fees, in lieu of notice.
All outstanding fees, accounts and levies are to be paid in full prior to the last day of attendance.
