School Fees Reminder
Just a reminder that Term 1 fees were posted out over the past few weeks and the Catholic Education Office of Parramatta have extended the due date payable which has not yet been set. We will advise this date as soon as it is available. Please contact Jean Webb on 9208-7239 if you have not received your statement or wish to discuss your account further.
We would also like to confirm that the correct Biller code for all Bpay payments is 565036 St John Paull II Catholic College. Some families may have noticed that their Bpay Reference code is different to the one used last year. This is due to our new finance system and it would be appreciated if these details could be updated when making future payments.
Thank you to those Parents/Caregivers who have paid their fees or have put a payment arrangement into place.

Schofields Campus Student Drop Off/Pick Up Zone Changes
The Schofields Campus has recently upgraded the student drop off/pick up zone! The drop off zone for our Schofields Campus is located next to the College at Rose Cottage and now has a separate entry drive way and exit driveway.
Although there is some signage, we are looking to improve the signage in these areas to assist with the easy flow of traffic. We ask that parents/caregivers dropping off or picking up students please use the new entry and exit driveways as shown in the image below.
Reminder: Please Label All Belongings Brought to School
The staff at the College Office would like to remind students and parents/caregivers to please label all belongings that are brought to school so that lost property can be returned to the correct students.
This includes uniforms, devices, stationary, sports equipment and any other important items.
If your child has lost any of their belonging, please advise them to visit the College Office to look at what has been handed into lost property.
Any questions, please feel free to contact the College Office on 9208 7200.
