We are very aware of the rising costs for families and this is given careful consideration in the

process of setting school fees and levies. However due to Government school funding

agreements, there is an expectation that Catholic school communities contribute to the cost of education.

In order to assist families, we encourage payment via direct debit. This allows for regular

payments to be made equally over the 40 school weeks. Direct debit request forms are available from the office.

Please note: If your current payment arrangement is direct debit you will receive a letter

shortly with your revised payment amount for the following year.

We understand that sometimes financial hardship may arise and thus impact on a family’s ability to make their contribution. If a family is in this situation they are encouraged to promptly make contact with the Principal to work toward a resolution and discuss the availability of further assistance.
