At St Joseph’s Laurieton, fees are notified to parents as a single amount payable for the year(See below for schedule of fees). This figure includes tuition fees, resources(including book packs), Building and Maintenance fees, Technology fees and most week to week sporting and cultural costs(Additional excursions, elective sports programs and band/instrument tuition are not included).
Schedule of Fees 2023:
School fees levels will be notified via a statement at the start of the year.
Payments can be made by negotiation in any of the following ways:
Variations to the selected payment schedule need to be discussed with the school Principal.
Payment options include cash, cheque, internet transfer/direct debit. Any bank charges, such as Direct Debit fees, are the responsibility of the school fee payer.
Fees reminders are sent home at the beginning of each term, and reminders are sent home at regular intervals. Families are urged to speak with the Principal if they are experiencing difficulties with their fees. It is our policy that no family will be excluded from school on the basis of inability to pay fees. We do expect, however, that a commitment is made to contribute towards the cost of education of all children at St Joseph’s.
All families with current ‘fees outstanding’ will be contacted by the Principal unless prior arrangements have been made. If a family has chosen a fee payment schedule other than the standard “pay on invoice”, their payment progress will be monitored to ensure payments are regular and complete. An interview with the Principal may be arranged if the family indicates they are experiencing difficulties.
School fees will be considered overdue if they are not paid in full by the end of term three unless an instalment plan is in place.
Any costs incurred through actions involving a Debt Collector will be added to the School Fee Account.
The Parish Priest has the authority to instigate legal action to recover outstanding debts if necessary.
