School Fee Assistance
If you require further assistance, Catholic Education’s policy states:
“No students should be excluded from a Catholic school because of the inability of their parents to pay the prescribed fee - in whole or in part.”
Families may be eligible for school fee assistance under the Concession Card Tuition Fee Discount and/or the Principal’s Concession Scheme.
CONCESSION CARD TUITION
A 70% Tuition Fee Discount is available for ‘means tested’ government Health Care and Pensioner Concession cards. These cards must meet eligibility criteria for this concession to apply.

Total or partial exemption from the payment of fees and levies is available on application to the Principal to ensure that confidentiality is maintained.
