Accounts are payable in Week 5 of each term. Parents have different payment options including direct debit as well as credit card and EFTPOS facilities available for the payment of fees.
Tuition fees fund the recurrent expenditure of the school eg. electricity, insurance, council charges, maintenance, teaching resources, consumables, cleaner’s and groundsman’s wages.
Please note that $360 of this amount is forwarded to Brisbane Catholic Education which in turn provides office staff, teacher aides, teacher/librarian and other central services including teacher in-service and specialist support staff.
Children travelling to school by bus may be eligible for free transport depending on the location of their residence in relation to district state schools.
Ineligible students can travel on buses by paying a fare. Parents can purchase these from Fassifern Coaches.
Parents of children paying fares to transport children to school are eligible for financial assistance from Queensland Transport through Conveyance Allowance and/or Queensland Catholic Education Commission through Non Government Schools Bus Fare Assistance Program (BFAP).
This is a fee for children in Years 6–7 only to help cover the cost of activities and materials associated with our Language Other Than English program which is German.
Capital acquisition and maintenance are the responsibility of the Parish and School Community. Governments (both State and Federal) have provided significant grants towards this over the past decade. Unfortunately Government grants do not provide 100% of the cost of major capital works. All Saints’ School has outstanding loans for major capital works which need to be serviced. Loan repayments are made from donations received to the School Building Fund. This fund is registered with the Australian Tax Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and as such any donations (over $2) to this fund are tax deductable donations.
The IT Levy facilitates the loan drawn to purchase banks of student notebooks, netbooks, iPads and Interactive Whiteboards in all classrooms.
The Excursion and Activity Levy will cover Arts Council productions per year, excursions, Raw Art, P & F Levy and various other school activities.
