2024 School Fees, Levies and Family Discounts

We have reviewed our school fees in accordance with recommendations from the Catholic Education Diocese of Wagga Wagga for increasing fees in line with inflation (approx. +5% across all Diocesan schools) to ensure we can maintain and operate our school at a high standard, now and into the future.

As per recommendations from The Catholic Education Diocese of Wagga Wagga we have allocated 10% of the Tuition Fee towards the introduction of a Resource Fee and have also introduced a Building Levy.

The Resource Fee has been introduced to cover a range of goods and services costs including resources such as classroom consumables, exercise books, subscriptions and technology costs.

The Building Levy will contribute to maintaining our current learning facilities for our school and various other building projects (including new playground equipment) to ensure students enjoy the physical facilities to enhance their learning experience.

The Fees in 2024 for St Joseph’s Primary School are as follows:

  • Tuition Fee – $1,797.00 for the eldest child.
    • For families with multiple children attending CEDWW schools, both primary and secondary, we are maintaining the sibling discounts of 20% (2nd child), 50% (3rd child) and 90% (4th plus child).
  • Resource Fee – $200.00 per child
  • Building Levy – $100.00 per child

The sibling discount does not apply to the Resource Fee and Building Levy.

The School Fee Installment Agreement has replaced the old Annual School Fee Payment Agreement and will no longer need to be completed on an annual basis, unless your circumstances change or you wish to amend your payment frequencies.

Fee Statements will be emailed to families in late January. The school provides two options for school fee payments, these being through either Eftpos or BPay (the preferred option).

Should parents become unable to meet these fees, it is essential they contact the Principal as soon as possible so that confidential arrangements can be made.

If you would like to discuss your school fees, please contact our Finance Manager, Toni Mimmo at our office on 6959 2238 or email: mimmot@ww.catholic.edu.au
