Application Fee

Parents/guardians register their child by completing the Application for Admission form and paying the $50.00 Application Fee. This is a one-off, non-refundable fee to cover administration costs applying to each application.

Endowment Fee 

An Endowment Fee of $2,000.00 for all new students confirms your child’s place at the school. Payment of this fee completes the enrolment process. The non-refundable, non-transferrable fee is used to support the quality buildings and facilities on campus.

Fees and Levies

Tuition fees include most textbooks, sporting registration fees, excursions and after-school academic support.

Fees do not include compulsory school uniform, personal stationery or consumables, entrance fees to sporting venues, music tuition, work books or texts notated by students, the ICT levy or special and voluntary events during the year.

The ICT levy supports the school's one-to-one policy that sees students in Junior School provided with classroom devices, and a take-home device for students in Years Seven to Twelve. 

Residential boarding fees are additional to tuition fees and provide services seven days per week, including accommodation, meals, supervision, an activities programme and laundry services. A travel service is also provided for students to attend offsite appointments and sporting commitments. 

Tuition and boarding fees are charged to family accounts each term and are due 14 days after commencement of each term. 

Some families prefer to pay their fees weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Edstart is an alternative payment option to assist families manage their school fee payments. You can spread your school fees into weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments, as well as extending payments over a longer period. Visit edstart.com.au for more information.
