Attendance dues and activity fees
We have many options to support families and money should never prevent our learners in getting the education they deserve. If at any time the attendance dues or activity fees are an issue, our principal, Emalene Cull, or office administrator, Caroline Morunga can assist. Any inquiries will be kept confidential.
Attendance Dues for the Catholic Schools in the Hamilton Diocese are $444.00 (incl GST) per year, (i.e. $110 per term or $8.54 per week) plus an optional $40 Catholic Character donation.
This is payable to the Catholic Diocese of Hamilton (it is not through our school). These forms will be included in your child's enrolment pack.
You can either pay the full amount or set up an automatic payment of $8.54 per week for 52 weeks.
In case of financial hardship we are able to seek financial assistance for, or towards, attendance dues.
This is for school activities, resources and performing artists. This is payable to Bishop Edward Gaines Catholic School. Our school will invoice you for this.
