PAYING M&S CHARGE BY INSTALMENT.
The direct debit by instalment facility will enable parents to complete an agreement for schools to deduct from the parent’s nominated bank or credit/debit card, an agreed amount either each week, fortnight or month until the full debt is paid. Centrepay users may continue to use that process, but the current instalment process has been superseded by this new DECD procedure. Please talk to our Finance Manager Meridee McClean for instalment applications, school card forms or any further information.
