Costs at Warrnambool College
Warrnambool College Council and Administration are very conscious of the need to keep costs at a manageable level, and to provide various services to help reduce or offset the expenses involved in starting your child in Year 7. The cost for books and uniforms listed in this information sheet are based on NEW items, based on the 2018 price. Second hand uniforms are also available from the uniform shop. The fees and charges set out are for 2018.
You will receive a booklist from Warrnambool Books in November which you are required to pay when you collect your books in January. Second-hand books are available on the Sustainable Bookshop Site at: http://www.sustainableschoolshop.com.au. More information will be provided in your booklist pack which will be distributed in November.
College fees and charges are invoiced by December to give families as much notice as possible as payment is required before the commencement of the 2018 school year. Payment Plan options are available, a form will be sent home with your booklist pack to set this up.
