PARENT INFORMATION - Fees

As a Catholic school, St Agatha’s receives approximately 80% of its income from the Commonwealth and State Governments. The remaining 20% is raised through school fees and fundraising activities.

School fees are determined by the Principal in consultation with the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited, and are reviewed annually.

It is the school policy that no child is refused enrolment at St Agatha’s Primary School due to financial reasons, except in some cases where families do not qualify for any Government funding, i.e. full fee paying students. Families are encouraged to contact the school office if there are any issues regarding their school account.

Accounts for school fees are emailed to each family four times a year.
