School Fees

St Pius X School is committed to providing high quality education which is affordable and accessible to all families, regardless of their background or financial means.

As a Catholic school, we rely on a contribution from families in the way of school fees, in order for us to offer high quality educational services.

Our current annual fees are displayed on this website.  Our fees include tuition, stationery and text books - including online subscriptions, all excursions, student accident insurance and the provision of a an ipad (R-3) or laptop (Years 4 - 6)

The only additional cost for families are the uniforms, school camps (Years 4-6), the swimming program (Reception to Year 4) and optional extra-curricular activities. Each family are also charged a $35 fee to cover the cost of the School Year Book.

Payment of school fees can be tailored to suit individual family circumstances. Fees can be paid either weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly or annually.  Fees can be paid via direct debit, cash, credit card, Bpay, Centrepay and direct deposit.

Please refer to the payment calculator below for more information. Generous remission is offered for low income families.  Please see our Fee Schedule.

We will not deny an enrolment because of a family’s genuine struggle to meet fee commitments; however, we always ask that families make some contribution towards fees, as they are able.  In these situations, we can arrange a confidential meeting between the parents and our Principal and School Bursar.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions about our fees or enrolment processes.
