The school fees for 2022 have been approved by the school board in consultation with the finance committee. The payment of fees is a responsibility and commitment by parents/guardians and ensures the School maintains quality education and resources for the benefit of all students.

What is included:

The Full Fee above covers all tuition, levies, excursions and other charges; including choir, band and school sanctioned sports for each child.

Year 3 "Big Day Out" plus Year 4, 5 & 6 Camps are excluded and you will be charged separately.

Uniform, private music tuition and OSHC fees are not included in the above fees.


Lower income fee:

To be eligible for the lower income fee, you need to qualify as a low income family. This is determined by your family's gross income and is a $ value set by the State Government. 

In 2021, your family's gross income needed to be below approximately $60,264 for a family with one school-aged child. (The limit will vary depending on how many dependent children you have.)

Proof of income is required and applicants will need to apply via the State Government's School Card scheme (click here for more info).
