School Levies are set and reviewed annually by the St Joseph’s School Board and approved by the Parish Priest. These levies include:
- Building Levy (buildings and maintenance)
- P&F Fundraising Levy
- IT Levy
- Resource Levy
Every attempt is made to make an education at St Joseph’s affordable. Families experiencing financial hardship are able to make confidential arrangements with the school. Parents are required to contact the Finance Officer office to arrange an interview. No Catholic child will be denied a Catholic education because of financial difficulties.
Failure to follow school policy and procedures may result in the engagement of a Debt Recovery Agency.
Discounts are offered to families where more than one child is attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Cairns. Parents are often pleasantly surprised at the affordability of Catholic Education in the Cairns Diocese, especially when fee schedules are compared with those of other non-government schools such as private or independent schools, or capital city Catholic schools.
The Diocesan schedule of current tuition (school) fees, along with information about discounts and Centrepay, is available from the school or the Catholic Education website.
