There is a growing misconception in the community that our Catholic Schools are Private Schools. This is not the case. We are a community committed to positive relationships and believe that optimal learning occurs when the school, home and church communities work together in partnership.

The School Fees cover most of the costs of your child’s education at our schools for a year.

The Family Fee is $1460 and is a family fee regardless of the number of children.

The Education Levy is $260 per child (covers stationery, day to day supplies, sporting events and excursions/incursions). (Note in Government Schools there is a compulsory Education Levy that must be paid on enrolment).

Enrolments for our three Primary Schools, St James, St Francis and St Clare’s, are always open.
