School Fees

Catholic schools aim to keep their fees as low as possible and can provide flexible payment arrangements for families.

Students who meet enrolment criteria will not be refused enrolment because of a families’ genuine inability to afford school fees.  If the one reason why you hesitate to send your child to Holy Family is your inability to pay fees, please make an appointment with the Principal before making your decision.

Contact the school by email or phone on 9628 9232 during business hours to learn more about fees.


2017 Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees

Holy Family Primary is part of a system of schools in the Parramatta diocese run with the support of the Catholic Education Office, Parramatta. Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are committed to providing an affordable, quality Catholic education for families.

We understand the financial demands placed on families and seek to keep fees as low as possible. From time to time, some families might experience financial challenges. Confidential fee support is available through:

* discounts for families with multiple siblings in our schools
* flexible payment plans
* hardship concession policies for families in need
* the Bishop Manning Scholarship Fund
* the Byawalla Co-contribution Scheme for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.

The tuition fee is only charged for the first three (3) children currently enrolled in the Diocese i.e. there is no additional Diocesan Tuition Fee for the fourth or subsequent children attending a systemic school in the Diocese or other participating Catholic schools.

The 2017 term rate for each of the first three terms is as follows:

School Resource Fee

A school resource fee is charged every year which covers all the books/paper/resources that each child needs for the year.

During the year each class goes on one excursion and payment for this is also included in the resource fee. During the year the school invites groups for excursions e.g. CSIRO, Drama and Music groups etc.  These are usually funded by the school or by generous donations from outside.

 A Statement of Account is distributed at the beginning of each Term.

School fee payment methods include cash, cheque, direct debit, credit card, EFTPOS, BPay, Australia Post BPay and deductions from Centrelink payments. Payments can also be made on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis at no additional charge and by arrangement with the School Finance Officer.
