The School invoices all fees as an annual charge in February. The
account will itemise all applicable charges for the full school year,
thus enabling parents to budget for the year.
The School’s fee structure and controlled budget relies on payment of
school fees promptly. With this in mind we have available a number of
payment options and methods.
This fee covers many of the incidental costs that arise during the
school year. It will cover some of the costs associated with printing,
special art and craft lessons and other similar activities. It is not
set to increase the amount of school fees collected but to cover costs
that would usually need to be collected during a normal school year.
Each family is charged a P&F Levy to assist the Parents and Friends
Association in carrying out the many activities they take on during the
year that enhances the education and facilities for every student
attending St Joseph’s.
Each family is required to pay a levy towards the debt servicing of the
school’s capital works. This covers a small proportion of the total
debt servicing of the school. This levy is not tax deductible.
This levy is used to increase and upgrade our provision of IT for the
students’ education. IT is a resource that needs constant upgrading and
the associated costs are supplemented from the school’s budget. The
understanding and use of IT is embedded across the curriculum and is an
essential learning tool for all students.

liability insurance cover for their children. St Joseph’s does not
accept responsibility for any claim to property loss or damage incurred
by students or parents.
