As you may be aware, there is still uncertainty around long term government funding for Catholic schools.  Indications are that federal government funding for education post 2017 will be linked to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which historically has been much lower than the education inflation rate.  Funding growth linked to CPI will not meet increases in the real costs of schooling.

To maintain our current service levels we will need to increase diocesan tuition fees by 3%.  This increase will mean we can continue to fund important initiatives to improve student learning, including:

    * literacy and numeracy programs such as Focus 160, Reading Recovery, EMU, EM4 and
       professional learning for teachers and leaders to support the implementation of these
    * increasing support for students with disabilities, behavioural and emotional needs 
    * improving our learning spaces, technology and infrastructure
    * building new schools and expanding existing schools to cater for new places

Scholarships and fee arrangements
​We are committed to ensuring that ​no child will be refused enrolment due to a family's financial situation.  ​There are a range of scholarship and support programs to assist families including:

    * The Bishop Manning Scholarship Fund
    * Fee arrangements and discounts
    * The Byallawa co-contribution scheme for Indigenous families

Annual Diocesan Building Levy - 2017

The Diocesan Building Levy enables us to continue to maintain all schools to a high standard, and ensure we can expand or build new schools in high growth areas.  To ensure this continues we will need to increase the building levy by $21 per family per year. 

The levy for 2017 will be $756 per family, payable in three equal instalments of $252 payable in terms one, two and three.

We continue to make every effort to contain educational costs and we do not take the decision to raise fees lightly.  If a school fee increase will be difficult for your family to manage, please contact your school principal.  ​We will provide every assistance to families in financial need.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Catholic education.
