Bursaries

Highview seeks to support every aspirational student, regardless of financial circumstances. Highview College has provision for 30% of our enrolled students to receive bursaries. Bursaries are available to families with a means-tested Health Care Card. A Highview College Bursary requires $55 per fortnight to be automatically deducted from Centrelink payments. Bursary applications are required and assessed each year. Please contact the Accounts Manager for application enquiries.

Please note: Applications close 30 February 2022.

Further applications will be considered if the bursary provision has not been reached.

Conveyance Allowance

The conveyance allowance is a form of financial assistance to help families in rural and regional Victoria with the cost of transporting their children to their nearest appropriate school/campus. For more information, please contact the Accounts Manager. 

PTV Victorian Student Travel Pass Reimbursement

This is a new incentive from 2022. Highview College will offer reimbursements to parents/guardians for the cost of a Victorian student travel pass if this cannot be claimed through the Department of Education Conveyance Scheme. This currently applies to all Creswick and Castlemaine students in Years 7 - 10.

Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund

CSEF is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities. This allowance will be paid against your school fee account as camps, sports and excursions are built into our tuition fees. If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF. Please contact the College Office to obtain a CSEF application or download from the following website: http://www.education.vic.gov.au

Enrolment Cancellation

Families withdrawing their child/children from the College should inform the College in writing of their intention. A leaving form should then be completed, giving a minimum of one term’s notice. A term’s fees will be charged in lieu of adequate notice. This also applies where a student (or parent's) behaviour results in cancellation of enrolment.

Enrolment may also be cancelled when an account is in arrears equivalent to one Term. This will apply when a family has not made contact to arrange a payment plan or has failed to maintain an agreed payment plan. We urge any families who are experiencing financial difficulty to make contact as early as possible.
