SCHOOL FEES FOR 2018
The School Advisory Council has approved a slight rise in fees and levies for 2018 in line with the recommendations of the Catholic Education Office. Any rises have been kept to a minimum and, as always, any family experiencing difficulty meeting the obligation is encouraged to discuss this with the principal. The fees and levies for next year are:
Family Tuition Fee
This fee is charged on a family basis. In 2018 it will be $870 per year. This may be payable in weekly, fortnightly or quarterly instalments.
Funds from the Family Tuition Fee provide the bulk of our local contribution towards to the cost of the day to day operation of the school.
The State and Commonwealth Governments also provide funds for this purpose.
Family Capital Fee
This fee is charged on a family basis and is $250 per family.
Funds from the Family Capital Fee assist in meeting the building and grounds improvements and maintenance. This fee is payable in the same way as the Family Tuition Fee.
This fee is charged on a per student basis and is $80.
Funds from the Technology Levy go towards the purchase of notebooks, hardware, software, licences and maintenance of these items.
This fee is charged on a per student basis and is $260.
Funds from the Student Fee go towards the cost of student requisites for class and school programs throughout the year, Life Education Van and minor excursion costs. There is also provision for purchasing library stock and replacements.
This fee is due for payment by Friday 16 February 2018.

Full collection is essential for St. Michael’s to remain financially viable. It is the expectation that every family will fulfil their school fee commitments. When school fee payments are creating hardship, parents are requested to make an appointment with the principal to arrange a suitable repayment schedule.
