School Fees 2023 

School fees are generated four times a year. Each family will receive their fee statement by the end of Week 3 of each term. Below is a table which represents your fees for the year. If a family has a child enrolled at Carroll College, Broulee or Trinity College Goulburn a discount of $178.50 per term, will be subtracted from the abovementioned term fees eg. instead of paying $762.00 per term, the fee will be $583.50 per term. To access the 50% discount you will need to verify that you have other children enrolled in these colleges.

Total Fees per Year 




If a family decides to make fortnightly payments, yearly school fees should be divided by 26 payments. This will ensure that all fees are paid by the start of the next school year eg. a family with 2 children has a yearly fee of $3648.00. This amount should be divided by 26 payments which will equal approximately $141.00 per fortnight. For those who have an outstanding debt from the previous year(s), you may need to look at what your current debt is, add this year’s fees to that amount, then divide that amount by 26 payments to ensure fees are fully paid by the end of the school year.

Any family that is experiencing financial difficulty will need to contact the school office and make an appointment to see Mrs Johanna Wain, Principal.
