Fees are levied for attendance at Catholic Schools.
Federal and State Governments acknowledge the right of parents to choose the school which best suits their children's needs for educational, religious, cultural or other reasons.
However, in comparison with funds spent on children in government schools, government funds committed to non-government schools remain limited. We can justly claim to use our limited funds very efficiently. Your contribution through school fees is essential to the continued operation of St Benedict's.
There are three components which make up the cost of attendance at a Catholic School:
- Tuition Fees ~ these are set by the Diocese and apply to every Catholic School in the
- Diocesan Levies ~ Levies set by the Diocese to help fund Capital projects at schools
throughout the Diocese.
- School Levies ~ these are levies applied by the school to help cover the operational cost of
running the school.
