Catholic schools are charged with the responsibility of making themselves as accessible as possible to all in our communities who desire a Catholic education.
The College Advisory Committee then has responsibility for balancing the need to respect and include the poor with its responsibility to manage College resources effectively to achieve the mission of the College community. Consequently the level of fees charged takes into account the needs of the College and the capacity of the community pay.
Families who find the financial burden difficult are encouraged to consult with the Principal or Business Manager regarding the possibility of fee assistance or relief before deciding to preclude their children from Catholic Education on financial grounds. Telephone 5662 4255 for more information.
The College Advisory Council has set the annual fees for 2019 as follows:

Timeliness of Payments
The College’s fee structure and budget relies on the prompt payment of school fees. This minimizes administration time as well as costs involved in following up outstanding fees.
All enquiries regarding payment of school fees should be directed to the Finance Officer or Business Manager on 5662 4255.
An enrolment deposit of $150.00 is payable with the Application for Enrolment Form when submitted for a Year 7 student. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. Once enrolment is confirmed, the deposit is credited to the school fee account when fees are charged in February of the commencement year.
