School Fees Policy and Practice 2018


The Bishops of Western Australia have approved the collection of school fees from parents as a necessary contribution to the costs of delivering a Catholic education. Although Catholic schools receive government assistance, fees constitute an essential proportion of the school income.


The school aims to keep fees to a minimum so that parents will be encouraged to enrol their children without undue hardship.
