Changes to BPay Direct Debits

Please note that there will be some changes where payment of school fees are made by either BPAY or Direct Debit.

BPAY

St Simon Peter CPS has been allocated a new BPAY Biller Code which is:

  • Biller ID No: 280388                                                                                         
  • Long Name: St Simon Peter Catholic PS Ocean Reef
  • Short Name:  St Simon Peter CPS

This new BPAY Biller Code must be used for all school fee payments made from 1 January 2018.  This new BPAY Biller Code will appear on all future Fee Statements along with your unique family Reference Number.

If you have the old BPAY Biller Code saved in your internet banking, please ensure that you change it to the new code.

Direct Debits

As a result of some banking system processing changes, families that have in place Direct Debits for payment of school fees which would normally be processed between the Christmas and New Year period will not be processed until Tuesday 2 January 2018.

Therefore, if your Direct Debit is due between 23 December 2017 and 1 January 2018 it will not be processed until 2 January 2018.

Please ensure that you leave sufficient funds in your account to cover the delayed payment.

Kind regards SSP

Give 10

During 2017 we had 156 families meet their 10 hours or more, school service commitment to our school community.  These hours are self-reported each year by the families working the hours they do on rosters, sports days, excursions, in the Canteen, HOPE hours, at Board meetings, in the library, in the classrooms and on Camp!  There are many ways to Give 10. 

We had 66 families who completed more than 20 hours and 15 families exceeded 50 hours or more in 2018.  This is a really great effort.  These are hours of service, that if not done, we are not too sure this work would get done at all!  So thanks everybody and well done to all of our families involved.

Your child will be bringing home a certificate in their bag for you which acknowledges this work and how much we appreciate it.  We hope to see you all next year.

Kind regards SSP

Drumbeat Performance and Party - Thursday 7 December 2017

Please note our DRUMBEAT students are having a performance in the Hall during their normal DRUMBEAT session tomorrow, Thursday 7 December 2017, from 12.00-12.45pm.

They have each invited some friends and their parents. They will be bringing in a plate of food to share. A few staff will also join them to enjoy the performance and take part, however, the students do not want whole classes to attend as they will be too shy and anxious.

Kind regards SSP

A Message from the School Board

As the end of year approaches the SSP School Board would like to wish everyone a happy holiday.  We have seen another strong year of performance from the school including the music concert, One Big Voice and the sports carnival, as well as academic improvements in NAPLAN.

We would like to wish our current Year 6 students the best of luck with their future as they prepare to move on to High School and hope they take the values of the school with them.  For the other years' students we look forward to welcoming you back in Term 1 of 2018.  It's an exciting year ahead as well with the launch of the 1:1 program in Year 4 which marks the culmination of a lot of hard work, effort and discussion across a range of the different groups in our school community.  

Merry Christmas
SSP School Board Members
