Attendance Dues are a compulsory charge by the Catholic Integrated Schools Office. It is a charge for attendance at an integrated school and is one of the main sources of income for maintenance or upgrade of existing buildings. It is administered and collected by the Hamilton Diocese Office. Dues are not tax deductible.
The 2021 Attendance Dues for secondary students are $888 per student, and a Special Character Levy of $50 per student. The Diocese indicates there may be a small increase for 2022, but it has not set the fee yet.
The Board of Trustees requests a voluntary contribution or donation from all families so that all students can access the resources and facilities they deserve. The great majority of families accept the need to make this contribution which benefits all students. Contributions are tax deductible and you will be issued with a receipt.
This supports the very features of St John’s College that make it attractive to you as a parent:
$600 per year for 1 student. For siblings attending in the same year - $200/year for each additional sibling.
This is collected on behalf of the Proprietor, the Catholic Diocese of Hamilton. It 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.
$250 per year / per family.
