School Fees are set each year to cover projected running costs of the school. It is our strategy to always keep fees to the minimum recommended by the Catholic Education Council. Approximately 50% of School Fees are needed to make up the difference between Government Grants and teachers salaries. The remainder is spent on classroom needs (eg books, materials) and administration (including electricity, phone, office expenses, machines etc).
To sustain quality Catholic Education at All Saints School, it is agreed by parents at enrolment that full school fees and levies are payable when the school accepts the enrolment of their child. School Fees and Levies are issued on a term basis, over 4 terms and emailed to each account holder. The term statement is issued from week 3 of each term. We recognise that in particular circumstances from time-to-time families may need an avenue for discussion and mutual decision with the school administration about the procedure and capacity to pay the given fees. If you have any concerns about the school fees, please contact the school finance office to discuss your family’s circumstances. All Saints are committed to providing support throughout this process.
You will note that a Family and Community Engagement Levy (F.A.C.E) is charged. This levy is paid by all parents who have children attending a Catholic school. Part of the levy is used for operation costs of the Diocesan Councils, the State Council of the Federation and the National Parent Body and the balance is used by All Saints for school improvements which are organised by the All Saints F.A.C.E Committee.
