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).

Families who are experiencing financial difficulty and who are seeking a Catholic education for their children are entitled to fee assistance, irrespective of whether or not they have a Health Care Card.  Please contact our School Principal for more information.

School fee accounts are processed each Term (4 times a year) and are sent by email to all families during the first few weeks of term.

Payment options available are by cash, cheque (made payable to Our Lady of Lourdes School), EFTPOS, direct deposit and direct debit (see forms below) or by Centrepay which is done through Centrelink.  Please contact the school office for more information. Payment may be made in full, or by weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments.  The due date is usually several weeks prior to the end of term.

Information on School Fees and the School Building Fund and School Based Levies, which are set by the School Board, are advertised in the newsletter at the end of a school year for the next year.

    2. Refuse to complete a school fee concession form, and

    3. Refuse to contact the Principal.

Three reminder letters are sent prior to this process being used.
