School Fees

The school fees, as determined by the Diocesan Catholic Schools Board, for Resource, Tuition and Diocesan Family School Building Levy, are the responsibility of parents/guardians of students enrolled at the school. The fees are billed at the beginning of Terms 1, 2 and 3 and prompt settlement of this account in 30 days is appreciated. 
       

RESOURCE FEE

Students textbooks, photocopying, school diary and other stationery requirements are provided  through the school in return for this fee. It also covers some school excursions.
 

THE FAMILY SCHOOL BUILDING LEVY

This levy is set at $600.00 per year (2017) per family, and is paid to the school where the eldest child in the family is enrolled.  It is a true levy i.e. it is not voluntary and not tax deductible.
 

CONCESSIONS are available to parents who have more than one child attending a Catholic Secondary School in this Diocese. 

Concessions are also given to holders of a Health Care/Pension card.  An application form must be completed along with sighting of original card.  These forms can be obtained from

Julie Doherty, Finance Officer (phone 4014 7300)

Concessions may also be offered in cases of hardship.  In this instance an approach must be made to the Principal personally each year.  All discussions and arrangements regarding fees are of course strictly confidential between Parents and Principal.  Such concessions are not discussed with children or teachers. 
 

PAYMENT OF SCHOOL FEES

The preferred method of payment of fees is by Qkr! (pronounced "quicker") a mobile phone app.  There is a page here explaining the method.

Payments can also be made via cash, cheque, money order, credit card (over the phone), and eftpos. 

Direct debit from your bank, credit union or building society account is also available.  Please contact Finance Officer for this method of payment.  Please be aware that if your direct debit is dishonoured more than three times the school will cancel the deduction.  For any dishonoured direct debit, the school is charged a fee of $2.50 by your financial institution.  This fee will be passed on to the fee payer and will appear on the next statement.  No receipts are issued – please check bank account for proof of payment. 

We also have BPAY available.  All information for this method of payment is found on the top right hand corner of your statement.  You will need the biller code and your individual reference number.

  

The Catholic Schools Office declares that genuine inability to meet tuition and other fees does not exclude access to a school within the system by a child of a family genuinely committed to Catholic faith and practice.
