2019 Fees

** Charges and Contributions for 2020 may change


Diocese of Hamilton


Attendance Dues

$888 per year  or $222 per term

This levy is invoiced directly from the Diocese and is for repayment of loans for capital development.

Special Character Levy

$50 per year. 

This is used to support the Catholic Character activities and facilites provided by the Diocese.


St John's College

Learning Contribution

$450 per year / per student, with a reduction for families.

This supports the very features of St John’s College that make it attractive to you as a parent:

  • extra teaching and learning support staff (over and above that funded by the government grant). We pride ourselves on having smaller class sizes than many of the alternative schools available to your son.
  • modern technologies that mean students learn in ways that are relevant to them and to their futures.

Building Contribution

$250 per year / per family.

This supports the provision of functional learning facilities on an attractive campus environment. Construction of the new indoor sports complex is an example of this. Our land and buildings are owned by the Catholic Diocese which means that the government funding we receive for continued development of buildings is less than what is provided to state schools. Many families before you have contributed to the Building Fund, and by choosing St John’s College it is now your turn to support these building developments.
