School Fees

Payment of School Fees

At Our Lady of Mt Carmel Parish School we aim to provide quality education for your children at an affordable price.

As a Catholic school we rely on private income to meet the day to day operating costs of the school. Government Funding does not cover costs such as electricity, council rates, water, administration & maintenance.

Approved school card students receive a 40% reduction in Tuition fees. Families need to apply for school card at the beginning of each year to receive this discount.
