Special Notice Due to COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, some families may be affected and will face financial difficulties. Our priority is to facilitate the ongoing education of all our students and to provide stability for your child/ren. We are committed to working with families who are financially impacted and will assist where possible. Parents are encouraged to seek financial support and discuss one of the following options, which are immediately available to all families with children in Catholic schools.

The Centrelink Health Care Card Discount Scheme provides an automatic fee concession to the holders of eligible means-tested family concession cards. This discount applies to all year levels from Kindergarten to Year 6. Additional financial considerations are also available depending on each family’s circumstance.

  • For parents and caregivers who do not qualify for the Health Care Card discount, but who are experiencing financial difficulties, arrangements can be made to provide immediate support to assist you with tuition costs.
