Assistance with Fees - Health Care Card Tuition Fee Discount Scheme

The Catholic Bishops of Western Australia are determined that no family be denied the opportunity of education in a Catholic school because of financial difficulties.

The Health Care Card Tuition Fee Discount Scheme was implemented in 2005 and offers discount on tuition fees to holders of a means-tested family Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card. The scheme offers significant, automatic tuition fee discounts to both Catholic and non-Catholic families.

Families that qualify for the scheme will pay AU$230 for kindergarten and primary school tuition fees and AU$1,400 for secondary school tuition fees for 2015. Specific charges such as subject and building levies and excursion costs will still apply, however these can also be discussed with the Principal.

If you hold a current Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, please provide a copy of this to the school office and complete the required form no later than Friday 13 February to ensure that the appropriate discount is applied to your account.
