FOR SCHOOL FEES 2013 - see - RESOURCES LINK AT BOTTOM OF PAGE
The recommended tuition fee is set each year by the Catholic Education Council in Brisbane. This fee plus local pressures to meet budget requirements are taken into account by our School Board in determining the school fees for any given year. School fees are payable in advance by year/ term/ month, or can be set up through the school by direct debit (fortnightly or monthly).
Persons who have a genuine reason for not being able to meet their commitment should contact the Principal and discuss the matter as soon as the situation arises. Should fees not be paid and no contact made to the school, a collection agency may be appointed to act on the school's behalf.
NOTE: The balance remaining after The Pay Fund Levy has been paid is used for operational costs eg. electricity, insurance, telephone, maintenance etc. A rebate from Medicare is available for fees paid for children enrolled in our Prep and outside school hours care.
