Students are charged a fee of $1545 to cover the costs of books, stationery, library books, classroom reading materials, art and craft materials, duplicating paper, classroom equipment, PE equipment, Religious Education requirements, audio-visual equipment, and other educational needs throughout the year. All purchases are for the children’s use, but remain the property of the school except for exercise books. The Catholic Education Office charges several levies per child to support such issues as Child Protection, Professional Indemnity and copyright management, these are included in the Tuition fees.
The Resource Levy covers excursions (including cost of buses) swimming/Aquatic lessons and the sports lessons that are organized through different Sports Associations. This also covers the cost of Educational programs and resources. This year the levy is $447 per student.
This levy of $258 per student per year is an annual fee that covers all costs associated with Technology.
As from 2011 the Building levy is compulsory and is $206 per family. This is an annual charge per family to assist the school in meeting Capital Expenses.
This levy of $72 per family per year enables our school to continually upgrade furniture & equipment and other general purpose items. This levy helps reduce the amount of fundraising the families need to do throughout the year to raise funds for these types of purchases.
GOVERNMENT SCHOOL CARD SCHEME
A government grant is available to help lower-income families. This scheme varies from year to year with the criteria necessary to be eligible. Information re School Card will be available through the Finance Office early in 2019.
Concessions for School Card in 2019 will not be available until School Card official approval is granted.

A new application is required each year.
Please note that fee remissions are only applicable on Tuition Fees. All other charges are payable in full, as they are expenses that are directly incurred by the school.
