Scam Email Alert

After an incident at a school in another State of Australia where scammers posed as the school

and sent out an email to parents asking for their credit card details, we would like to offer the following advice:

  • Be alert to any emails purportedly from our school that request any personal information or payments from you. Indeed do not trust any email from any sender if you do not know why you are receiving it
  • The school would not request your credit card details by email
  • Never provide passwords of sensitive or financial information in response to an email request
  • Our preferred method of payment is BPAY. Many financial institutions enable BPAY from your credit card. However, if this is not an option for you, the safest alternative is to present to the school office with your credit card, or alternatively telephone the school to pay over the phone
  • Check the destination of the email address and ensure it is trusted and known to you before you reply
  • Do not reply to any suspicious emails from the school, its service providers or other third parties
  • Do not click on any links in emails of this kind
  • Please report any suspicious emails to the school immediately.
