Parent Payment Arrangements 2022
Jacana School for Autism is looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of Jacana School for Autism’s parent payment arrangements for 2022.
Jacana School for Autism is very proud of the quality programs that we have put in place to cater for the needs and interests of our students. Each year our student contributions, set by School Council, provide vital funds necessary to ensure we maintain a high quality of education for our students. On an annual basis School Council prepares a budget to provide resources for educational programs, administration, facilities development and maintenance. Our school’s income is currently funded from two sources:
Department of Education and Training (DET) Student Resource Package (SRP) Provides for the teaching of the standard curriculum and basic operational costs such as school administration, utilities and services, staff salaries, urgent works, maintenance, cleaning and general school operations.
The payments and contributions provided by our parent community are an essential component of funding. The three areas for which parents may reasonably be invited to make a payment or contribution are:
The Other contributions are the minimum amount considered essential to enable School Council and JSA Staff to maintain our excellent educational programs, successful outcomes and high-quality standards that have become the hallmark of Jacana School for Autism.
Please find the links to the Parent Payment Arrangements for Primary, Middle & Secondary below. Please complete this form and return to the school by 6th December 2022 so the school can prepare accordingly.
Jacana School for Autism makes every effort to keep the cost of items and activities to a minimum and affordable for all parents.
Financial Support for Families
Jacana School for Autism understands that some families may experience financial difficulty and offers a range of support options, including:
Pronounced ‘Quicker’ is a FREE app to enable mobile payment for school-based accounts to save you time. The app enables you to use your smartphone to make all school payments including Senior School Canteen, without having to give your children cash to carry to school. For those without access to a smartphone, a web-based version of QKR is available.
Although the app is a MasterCard initiative, it enables payment from most financial institutions and major credit cards with Safe and Secure MasterCard technology. Once you have downloaded the Qkr app and registering your email address, select ‘Jacana School for Autism’ and follow the prompts. (For those living outside a 10km radius from JSA, please go to the search bar and enter ‘JACANA.’)

Should you have any questions regarding the use of the QKR app please contact the school. We hope you enjoy this flexibility in managing your school payments.
