School fees and levies are reviewed annually.
The policy of the school is that no child will be excluded from school if families have a genuine financial difficulty. Families experiencing financial difficulties need to contact the School Principal or the Parish Priest so that alternative arrangements can be made. Such arrangements are strictly confidential.
Fees are payable on receipt of an account. Accounts are sent at the beginning of terms 1, 2 and 3. Please note payment in instalments eg. Weekly/fortnightly/monthly can be arranged by seeing the Principal or School Administration Officer. We also offer a Direct Debit service – Fortnightly, Monthly and Term. We also offer families the option to pay their fees through Centrepay.
An annual family fee is set by the School Board. An additional student levy is also charged.
In 2023 the family fee for one child will be $1,272, for a two children family the fee will be $1,905 and for three or more children the family fee will be $2,115 , plus an additional student levy of $390 per child. There is also a stationery/book list that parents are expected to get for each child (these vary according to the year the child is in).
The student levy goes toward covering costs incurred in providing quality programs and resources in each curriculum area. For example – library books, art supplies, computers and
licencing, photocopying, maths equipment, sports equipment, class sets of books, paper and exercise books, books for home reading, teacher resource books and assessment materials.
The Curriculum and ICT levy covers part of the cost of supplies and resources for classrooms and specialist classes, e.g. Art, Music, Library, Italian and Culture. It also assists the school to provide iPads for use across the school. The levy is higher for students in Grade 5 & 6 as students have a iPad for school and home use. For Grade 5 & 6 the levy is $240 and for Foundation – Grade 4 the levy is $125.
All excursions, camp, swimming and other costs incurred by parents are billed at the start of the school year so that parents can budget for all expenses throughout the year.
