Online Payment

Click to Pay Online

Click the image above to be re-directed to the secure Westpac payment page. You will no longer be in the Canterbury Girls High School website. Payments can be made using either a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card.

Please make online payments by 6 pm the day before payment is due. If a payment is made after 6 pm the school will not see that payment until the second business day, eg. payment made at 7 pm on Monday evening will be on the report the school accesses on Wednesday morning.

When you access the Online Payment you must enter the folowing student details:

  • Student's Name
  • Class or Year
  • Date of Birth

These details are entered each time you make a payment as student information is not held within the payment system. This is a secure payment system hosted by Westpac to ensure that your credit/debit card details are captured in a secure manner, these details are not passed back to the school.

Items that can be paid include voluntary school contributions, subject contributions, excursions, sport, sales to students and creative and practical arts activities (these include band, drama and dance). There is also a category called 'Other' to cover items not covered in the previous headings. 'Other' can also be used to make a complete payment of a school invoice. Click here for an explanation of School Fees.

You have the ability to check and change any details of the payment before the payment is processed. Receipts can be emailed and/or printed. Details of the payments are passed daily to the school where they will be receipted against your child's account. As a receipt has been issued from the payment page a further receipt will not be issued by the school.

If you have more than one child at this school, please use a separate transaction for each student. Click ‘Make Another Payment’ at the end of the first transaction.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Is there a time limit in which I need to pay my daughter's school fees?

  • Ideally, 2020 school fees are to be paid by the end of the school year. Whilst some parents pay off their daughter's yearly fees in one installment, it is equally as acceptable to pay your daughter's fees in installments over the year. Click here for a fee schedule detailing a payment plan for the year. However, it must be noted that excursions are a different story. Most excursions, with the exclusion of school camps and overseas trips, need to be paid in full in one installment. As highlighted below, excursions also have specific due dates that must be followed (this will be indicated on the excursion note). Please be aware of the payment due dates as your daughter will miss out on this opportunity if she does not pay by the specified due date.


  • Can I pay my daughter's (excursion/competition) fee after the due date?

  • Unfortunately, each excursion and competition (e.g., science competition) has their own payment due date and any payments received after these dates will not be accepted. This is because venues require payments by a certain date in order to secure bookings or organisers of competitions require final numbers by a specified date so as to print or purchase resources to run these competitions. Therefore, please be vigilant to the payment due dates specified on excursion and competition notes. We do not want your daughter to miss out, and therefore, if you have forgotten or are unsure about the payment due date of an upcoming excursion, call the Finance department on 9718 1805 (ext 106). If you pay online, please be aware that payment must be made BY 6pm on the due date. After 6pm, the payment will not be apparent in our online system until the second business day.
