Building Levy: Annual charge of $803 per family

Over recent years, many schools have undertaken major building projects for their primary schools. Increasingly, the funds to finance these major capital projects have been raised by the establishment of a School Building Levy.  The levy applies across the Archdiocese. Families with children attending more than one participating school will be billed on a pro-rata basis to ease the financial burden.
