to make a payment online, click here.
Before you get started we thought it would be helpful to provide you with some instructions to ensure the process is as simple and straightforward as possible.
First and foremost - please ensure you make online payments at least 2 full working days before they are due to ensure the office staff have time to process your payment. If you need to make a last minute payment - you must go into the office and make the payment directly!
When you click on "Make a payment" at the top of the page a popup window will appear.
This is a secure payment system hosted by Westpac to ensure that your credit/debit card details are captured in a secure manner. These details are not passed back to the school.
The student's name and date of birth and class. These details are entered each time you make a payment as student information is not held within the payment system. No student's details are given to Westpac. As a consequence, payments for each child need to be made separately. (There is also the option to enter the Student Registration Number and Invoice number but these fields are not relevant to Wilkins Public School.)
You must also enter details about who is paying. (Card Owner)
Under payment options, you enter the activity or item for which you are paying. Write a title in the Payment Description that will enable the school staff to match your payment with the school activity or item. The more specific you can be in this information the more information the office staff have for ensuring the payment goes towards the correct expense.
You have the ability to check and change any details of the payment before the payment is processed. You can print your own receipts or have the receipt emailed to your email account. This gives you immediate proof that you have paid for the item.
The next morning, details of the payments are passed to the school where they will be matched against your child's account. As a receipt has been issued from the payment page a further receipt will not be issued by us.
Finally, if there is a permission form that goes along with the payment, you must still ensure the permission form is sent through to the school via your child or by dropping it in at the office.
We hope this method will streamline payments and save parents time.
