School Fees

What are the school fees?

There are three levels of annual fees to be paid:

  • Diocesan Tuition Fees set by the Catholic Education Office
  • Diocesan Building Levy set by the Catholic Education Office
  • Service fees set by each school


Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees

Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees can be paid upfront at the start of the year or as three equal payments in Terms 1, 2 and 3. The fee is only charged for the first three (3) children currently enrolled in the diocese (in other words there is no additional Diocesan Tuition Fee for the fourth child attending a systemic school in the diocese or other participating Catholic schools - see 'Sibling Discounts' below). To work out how much the fee is for each child, check the table below.

The 2014 Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees are as follows:

Sibling Discount on Diocesan Tuition fees

Sibling discounts apply to Diocesan Tuition Fees payable by a family where that family is also paying a full Diocesan fee on the eldest sibling. These are included above at 25% discount for the second child, 50% for the third child and 100% for the fourth and subsequent children attending Catholic systemic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta, Archdiocese of Sydney, Diocese of Wollongong, and Diocese of Broken Bay as well as at St Dominic’s College, Kingswood.

In addition, principals have the discretion to give a discount of up to 10% on the total diocesan tuition fee where there are siblings attending congregational schools and the principal believes that the financial circumstances of a given family warrant some reduction.

If your school is listed with the comment Discount Automatically Applied in the Advice Required column, you do not need to do anything further.

If any of your children attend a school listed with the comment Sibling Advice Notice Required in the Advice Required column please take the following action:

  1. Open and print out the  Sibling Registration for Diocesan Tuition Fees form;

  2. Complete the form in full, listing all children attending Catholic Diocesan System Schools or St Dominic's College, Kingswood in 2014; and

  3. Post the completed form to the address at the bottom of the form.

If your school is not shown in the attachment list we are unfortunately unable to grant a sibling discount in relation to your child's attendance at that school.


Annual Diocesan Building Levy

All families with one or more children in a Parramatta Diocesan school or at St Dominic's College, Kingswood are required to pay the annual Diocese of Parramatta Diocesan School Building Levy. This levy has replaced the various building levies that parents previously paid to school building funds (managed by either parishes or schools).

The levy for 2014 is $669 per family, payable in three equal instalments of $223 payable in terms one, two and three.

The money collected from the levy is paid into a fund from which building costs and loan repayments for these schools are paid. The levy is not tax deductible.

Please note: families enrolling a child in other non-systemic schools or systemic schools outside the diocese may also be required to pay a levy to those schools where they operate their own building fund.

Diocesan Temporary Residents Education Fee

In line with the NSW Department of Education and Communities a Temporary Residents Education Fee will apply to new students on the following Visa numbers: 173, 401, 411, 415, 416, 418, 419, 420, 421, 422, 423, 426, 427, 428, 442, 457, 459,476, 485, 497, 580, 600, 601, 651, ,675, 676, 679, 685, 944, 956, 976 and 977 including where any of these are the preceding visas for families on bridging visas 010 to 090.

The fee for 2014 is $1,650 per student, payable in three equal instalments of $550 payable in terms one, two and three.  

Families charged this fee in 2013 will continue to be charged on a per family basis to the eldest student whilst the family has continuous current students.

Service fees

There will be some other school fees such as enrolment, resources, subject, excursion and sports fees. These vary from school to school and are explained at the time of enrolment.

Financial difficulty

If you are experiencing financial hardship and are unable to pay fees, please discuss the situation with your school principal. Your situation will be treated with care and confidentiality and an appropriate arrangement may be made for you.

No student will be refused enrolment because of a family’s genuine inability to pay fees.

Method of Payment

We accept cash, cheques, credit and EFTPOS for payment.  For your convenience payment can also be made at any Australia Post branch or via the internet by BPAY.

Contact the school office for further details regarding fees and making payments.
