Message from Catholic Schools about Support:

Would you like to receive a quality Catholic Education for your child? Is the cost of sending your child to a Catholic School holding you back from this?

We are here to assist you however we can.

Do you live in government housing?

Do you hold a current Health Care Card?

Is your only source of income Centrelink?

You could be eligible for heavily reduced fees.

If you don’t satisfy the above eligibility no need to panic, you still may be eligible for a reduction in your child’s school fees, if you are a low income worker.

We will also help you set up payment plans for the small amount of fees you may be required to pay.

All you will need to do is ask and our staff at your local Sydney Catholic School will be ready to assist you with this process, with the upmost of confidentiality.
