We welcome all students and their families who share or respect our Catholic faith, values and traditions. Catholic education is supported by State and Federal funding, with families contributing the balance of the cost of educating their children. At times, some families are unable to meet their commitment to the full costs of education. As a Catholic school system, we ensure fee relief mechanisms are available to support families in time of need. We encourage these discussions on enrolment or as these needs emerge.

School Fees and Levies are set at the end of each school year for the following twelve month period.

Detailed information and a payment plan sheet will be available in Term 4 for the following school year.  Payment options available are Direct Debit, eftpos, cash or cheque.
