What is Included

The tuition fee above covers all tuition, levies and charges for each child’s education.

Extracurricular activities, excursions, camps, and uniforms are excluded and will be charged separately.

 

Lower Income Fee

To be eligible for the lower income fee, you need to qualify as a low income family. This is determined by your family’s gross income and is a $ value set by the State Government.

In 2021, your family’s gross income needs to be below approximately $60,264 for a family with one school-age child. (The limit will vary depending on how many dependent children you have.)

Proof of income is required and applicants will need to apply via the State Government’s School Card scheme.

Our Finance Officer can help you if you have any questions about applying for the lower income fee.

 

Need help with School Fees?

If you are concerned about your ability to pay schools fees, we strongly encourage you to have a discussion with us. We believe a family’s financial circumstances should not be a barrier to a student accessing a Catholic education.

If you need assistance meeting payments or have any questions, please call the School Office.

 

Sibling Discounts

Discounts are available for families with more than one student attending our school.
