PAYING SCHOOL FEES

School fees are due thirty (30) days after annual accounts are issued, however schools offer a variety of methods of payment and flexible repayment terms to provide families with support to meet their commitments. To facilitate this flexibility, families are asked to complete a Diocesan School Fee Agreement to advise the school of their intended payment option. These agreements will be available each year with the annual fee invoice/statement or upon request from the school office.

Payment methods include BPay, Direct Debit, Centrepay, Credit Card, Cash, Cheque and EFTPOS.

Payments can be arranged on weekly, fortnightly or monthly schedules at no extra cost. Access our CEDoW school fee calculator to assist in determining the various repayment amounts.

 

FEE CONCESSIONS - FAMILIES EXPERIENCING GENUINE FINANCIAL HARDSHIP

While enrolment carries an obligation to pay all school fees and levies, Catholic Social Teaching and the Gospel imperative of a ‘preferential option for the poor’ means that our practice in the Diocese of Wollongong has always been to find a place for families who support its Catholic ethos and are seeking a Catholic education for their child. Families experiencing genuine financial hardship are eligible for assistance via fee concessions.

Our working definition of genuine financial hardship is: a situation where a family is unable, reasonably, because of illness, unemployment or other reasonable cause, to discharge their financial obligations to pay school fees, rather than an unwillingness or reluctance to do so. Financial hardship can be for a limited or long term duration.

A parent/carer experiencing genuine financial hardship and who is unable to pay school fees is urged to approach the principal, who will respond to their situation with care and sensitivity. Early communication with the school regarding a family's financial situation is essential. Please be assured that your situation will be treated with absolute discretion and confidentiality and an appropriate fee concession arrangement may be made with you.

Please note, no student will be denied a Catholic education because of a family's genuine financial hardship.

Further details regarding fee concession arrangements are included in the Diocesan School Fee Management Policy.
