2019 Fees


Did you know that we can help with some of the larger expenses that occur during the year (ie Canberra Camp) by establishing a payment plan that includes regular contributions throughout the year so that by the time the camp comes around you can rest assured knowing that most of the expense has been covered.

If you would like to set up a payment plan please email our Finance Officer, Sarah Loveday at sarah.loveday@goodshepherd.sa.edu.au
