Applications for entry to Fintona, for the Early Learning Centre (comprising 3 year old and 4 year old Kindergarten) to Year 12, must be made on the School's official Application for Admission Form. An application is a pre-requisite for enrolment but does not guarantee a place. A non-refundable Application Fee of $150 (inclusive of GST) is payable before placement on the waiting list.
A non-refundable enrolment fee per student is payable upon acceptance of a formal letter of offer.
The fee is $1,000 for entry into the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 12.
Fees in Advance
In addition to the Application and Enrolment fees a non-refundable full term’s fees in advance is required to secure a place at Fintona. When the student commences as scheduled, this deposit is credited against the first Tuition Fee account. If the designated place is not taken up by the student within three years it is forfeited. Enrolment at this point is subject to a place being available.
Due to the high demand for places in the ELC and Junior School, in addition to the fees in advance required for entry into the 3 year old program (due in May of the year prior to commencement), a deposit of a term’s fees in advance are required the following year if the student wishes to progress into the 4 year old program and Prep.
