School Fees are charged to allow the school to function. They are determined by the amount of shortfall in Government funding to Catholic schools. Heating, electricity, water, telephone, cleaning, maintenance, insurances and council rates are very costly and so the collection of fees to meet these costs is extremely important.
Tuition Levy including Stationery
Covers the cost of most equipment and materials necessary to implement our curriculum. Parents and Friends fundraising activities subsidise those costs, which are unable to be met through the levy -eg- playground equipment, furnishings.
Excursion Levy covers the costs of some of the compulsory excursions for the year. Parents are asked to contribute to more expensive excursions throughout the year when necessary. A fee is charged for non compulsory activities to cover the hiring of a bus.
At present, parents are asked to contribute to Planned Giving which is run by the Parish. This money supports the capital costs incurred by the school – for example – buildings, renovations and extensions, major furniture and equipment items. This is a voluntary contribution. Receipts are issued at the end of the financial year. If you feel you would like to support the school in this way please enquire at the office.
This is to subsidize capital works development in the school.
