School Fees

School Fees

School fees consist of a Tuition Fee, set annually by the Catholic Education Office, plus a Maintenance Levy, Cleaning Levy, Building Levy, Resource Levy and other levies set by the School.

School Fees are reviewed annually in line with inflation. In an effort to reduce the financial burden on families, the Catholic Education Office offers a significant fee discount for parents/carers who hold a means tested Australian Government Health Care Card (see concession rate below).
