Please Note: whilst every attempt has been made to bill all School Fees for the year up front, there may on occasions be a need to bill some additional fees such as excursions later in the year. As it is not practical to amend year accounts, parents are requested to pay these fees (if any) separately.
A scholarship fund has also been established to provide scholarships to eligible students. Catholic systemic school scholarships will be granted equitably based on need and merit. For further information on scholarships please contact the Fund representative by phone on 9407 7095.
