St Joseph Catholic School

Fees and Discounts

Our commitment to affordable fees enables us to deliver a high-quality education while still being accessible to our wider community.

 

If you are concerned about school fees, we strongly encourage you to come in and have a discussion with us. It is the policy of the school that no child will be denied a Catholic Education because of a family’s genuine inability to pay full fees. For the remainder of 2020 and beyond, Catholic Education is becoming more affordable for Primary Schools across South Australia

 


The Catholic Education of South Australia and St Joseph's are here for you

in 2020 and beyond

2020 has been an unwelcomed change that has resulted in many issues for our families, friends and the Catholic Education community. Although the plans for the future will ensure no child goes without the possibility of a Catholic Education

For the remainder of 2020

St Joseph's is here for you now and has acted for Term 4

With 2020 creating hardship and an increase of financial stress on families, St Joseph's is here to support you and the transition of your child into an affordable Catholic Education pathway. 

For the remainder of the year, students enrolled who start during term 4 in 2020 will receive Free Bursaries as a forward step to help reduce financial stress for the end of the school year. 

We want to support the Murray Bridge Community today, and we have provided this opportunity to all new students to ensure the transition into the Catholic Education is available with a higher grade of support. 

For the remainder of 2020

The fee reductions in 2020 and beyond will have no effect toward the quality education currently delivered in the dynamic and engaging learning evironment at St. Joseph's.

2021 and Beyond

Catholic Education is delivering a higher grade of support to it's community by delivering substanital fee reductions across all Primary Schools in South Australia

The Catholic Education of South Australia understands that the events of 2020 will flow on for many years to come as families and communities rebuild and get back on their feet. This is why the Catholic Education of South Australia and all Catholic Primary Schools across the state will deliver 46,000 students with more affordable fees and a greater degree of support to their respective communities. 

St Joseph's will offer $2000 school fees across all year levels in 2021 and beyond. This is a flat fee with no additional family fees, building fund or composite fees. With the introduction of Year's 8 and 9 from 2022, the fee structure for those years will be assessed closer to the commencement of those students.

Families who enrol more than one student at St. Joseph's will also receive further financial fee reductions based on the number of extra children enrolled.

There will be additional financial support for those with School Cards who will receive a flat fee of $1200 which is a 40% reduction off the 2021 school fees.

This is an average reduction of 49% across all school fees in comparison to the 2020 school fees. Tuition and Composite Fees are the primary discretionary source of income for the School, and they are determined annually by the School Board, in consultation with the Finance Committee.
