School Fees

As a Catholic Parish School, Our Lady of Mt Carmel strives to provide all families access to a quality Catholic education at an affordable price.

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

State and Federal Government funding accounts for a large proportion of school income, and the remainder is made up through parent contributions in the form of school fees.  The combined funding enables us to provide a wide range of learning opportunities for students and maintain the general operations of the school.

Payment of School Fees for Remission approved families for 2021

Financial concerns should not be a barrier to your child receiving a Catholic Education at Our Lady of Mt Carmel Parish School. Remissions on school fees are available to families experiencing financial difficulties.

Families need to complete a "School Fees Remission Application" to receive additional financial support. 

If financial concerns are an issue for your family, or your financial circumstances change throughout the school year, please make an appointment to meet with the Principal or School Finance Officer to see how we can best support you.
