Enrolment

Enrolling at PMAS

To enrol at Port Macquarie Adventist School (PMAS) all students are required to complete an application for enrolment form which is available from the school office. This form must be completed and returned, together with their birth certificate, and their last two school reports and NAPLAN reports, if applicable, from the school the student previously attended. Immunisation records and any medical reports or court orders must also be provided at this time.

We value families, and believe that it is the combined effort of the school and family that completes a child’s education. It is important, therefore, that each family meets with the school principal or deputy principal prior to enrolment. Once an application has been lodged, families will be contacted to attend an enrolment interview. Students must have completed the registration process and obtained final enrolment approval before commencing classes.

Conditions of Enrolment

Enrolment at Port Macquarie Adventist School is open to all families who wish to provide their children with quality Christian education. The school values the combined effort of the school and family in completing a child’s education. Therefore, each family is required to meet with the school Principal prior to enrolment to discuss the educational goals and expectations of both the parents and the school.

Pre-Kindy

PMAS Pre-Kindy fees are $40 per day.

Fees are charged either at the beginning of Term 1 or on enrolment during the year. A statement/invoice is issued for your records and payment, as per your payment plan, selected by you at enrolment.

Fees are payable in full on or before the second Friday of each term unless other arrangements are made.
All Family Fee Accounts are required to be paid in full by the end of November each year.

It is important that you notify the PMAS office of the payment option you intend to use. A non-refundable enrolment deposit of $200 is payable upon submission and approval of each student application.

School Tuition

Building Fund Levy
$150 per family, per year.

Discounts & Subsidies

PMAS is committed to making quality Christian education affordable to as many students as possible, and for many families, private school fees can be a significant investment. For this reason, we provide sibling discounts to assist families as well as employer subsidies, and a generous scholarship program is available to eligible students. To assist families in meeting the cost of education, a direct debit system is available which allows payments to be spread equally across the school year.

Prompt Payment Discounts

A prompt payment discount of 5% on tuition fees is applied if the full term’s fees have been received at PMAS by the advertised discount date. It is the responsibility of the fee-payer to ensure fees are received by the school by the discount deadline.

A discount of 10% on tuition fees will be applied if a fee-payer wishes to pay the annual fees upfront in the first term.

Detailed information on discounts and subsidies is available from the Office or by phoning 

Fee Support

Recognising that some families experience short term financial hardship, PMAS has limited funding available to assist families experiencing genuine difficulties.  We are dedicated to ensuring that financial hardship is not the primary reason for students being unable to attend or remain at PMAS.  In cases of genuine extreme hardship, assistance in meeting fees may be available. Families wishing to make application for fee remission should arrange an interview with the principal.
