While our school receives support from both Federal and State Governments, including a concession on fees to holders of Health Cards, the fees paid by parents are a significant part of the school’s budget for the school year.
The school fees at St Anthony’s School are considered reasonable in terms of the ability of parents to pay.
It is the duty of parents to pay the school fees at the time of notification or to make suitable arrangements.
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 12. 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.
It is a condition of enrolment that one full term’s notice should be given in writing to the Principal by the parent/guardian, prior to the withdrawal of a student. In default of such notice, one quarter of the annual fee (one term’s fee) will be payable.
The current fee structure can be found below.
