The Principal may rescind the offer of enrolment if:
Each enrolment is at the discretion of the Principal.
Enrolment at Toowoomba Christian College is subject to the following terms and conditions:
As part of the conditions of a child’s enrolment at TCC, one term’s notice of withdrawing a student is required in writing. The School reserves the right to invoice parents/carers for fees in lieu of notice.
All resources (ie Library books, Laptop, Textbooks, ID Card, Locker Key etc) on loan from the School must be returned or parents/carers will be required to pay the replacement cost for these.
As part of the process of withdrawing a student from TCC, parents/carers will meet with the Head of Primary/Head of Secondary. The Principal may also request a short meeting to say Farewell.
Parents/Carers must make arrangements to pay any outstanding school fees in full by the date of their child’s departure. If unable to make full payment, parents/carers must arrange to meet with the Accounts Officer to discuss a repayment plan.
Toowoomba Christian College offers to parents a Christian education for their children based on the following principles:
For more detail, please contact the school.
When the enrolling parents/caregivers have a change in their circumstances, e.g. they separate or want to change their financial arrangements regarding the payment of school fees, and a disagreement arises that affects the student’s ongoing enrolment, it is the responsibility of the enrolling parties to reach agreement independently from the school either through consultation or court action. The school will not become involved as the arbiter in disputes of this kind.
The school may put in writing a 3-month limit on the determination of the disagreement with the possible consequence of termination of the enrolment if the matter is not resolved.
When one of the parents or caregivers notifies the school that they do not support the enrolment of their child in the school, the enrolment will not proceed until there is agreement between the parents or caregivers that is expressed by signatures on this application showing their support for the enrolment.
The College reserves the right to change these conditions from time to time. If such a change is made, then this change is binding once the school community have been given notice of the change in the School News or on the school’s website. The College does not need to notify you of any changes made to the rules, regulations and policies of the College for them to be binding.
If there are Court Orders in place or if there is a Parenting Plan (signed by both parents) (Orders), Toowoomba Christian College will comply with the terms of the Orders. If the Orders specifically state who has the right to decide where the child attends school, the school will accept for enrolment purposes the signature of the parent who has the right to make the decision. If the Orders state that both parents must agree before enrolling the child in school, then both parents will be required to sign the enrolment form. If the Orders are silent on whether both parents need to agree, but include that the parents have “joint parental responsibility for major long term issues”, then both parents should consult with each other and make a genuine effort to come to a joint decision about the enrolment. Please note it is not the school’s responsibility to facilitate a dispute, nor interpret family court orders when parents or caregivers disagree about matters pertaining to their child’s education.
When a parent arranges an enrolment interview and expresses in person that they are the sole carer of a child or that there is no orders in place, the school will take this statement in good faith and will process the application in light of that statement.
Please Note: Full and frank disclosure is required. Any failure to do so may negate the initial or ongoing enrolment of your student at the College. The obligation to supply information to the school that may affect your student’s enrolment at the College is ongoing.
