School Fees & Charges 

In spite of substantial assistance received from the Australian and Victorian Governments, the financial contribution expected of parents is still considerable. Some of the costs listed below must be paid no matter which school a student attends. To enable parents to know clearly the full extent of their financial commitment the following summary is presented.


Yearly Costs

These annual costs consist of:

Fees and Charges
The College has annual charges for tuition, composite levies and compulsory camps. These combine to form the total College fees which are charged annually in advance in late November. It is compulsory to pay fees by Direct Debit (payment plans are offered in choices of four, ten or twenty instalments) or paying fully in advance and receiving a discount. Whilst every effort is made to contain costs, fees usually increase each year to cover staffing and other costs.

Composite Levies
These levies cover expenses associated with each subject. The levies cover costs of the College Planner and Annual, day excursions, films, visiting speakers and performers, notes and materials required by the particular subject. No requests for monies (except Residential Excursions which are optional) will be made of students during the year. No reductions are available in Composite Levies.

Compulsory Camps
All Year Levels, with the exception of Years 10 and 11 have a compulsory camp which is linked to education programs. It is expected that all students attend these camps. A medical certificate is generally required for any student unable to attend a camp. Costs vary according to the nature of the camp.

Student Textbooks and Stationery Items
Students are expected to purchase their own textbooks and stationery items. The College facilitates the buying of textbooks through an external provider. The sale of second-hand books is also through an external provider.

Music Tuition
Where private tuition is received by a student for a musical instrument, a separate fee is payable each semester. The fee charges are set by the Victorian Music Teachers’ Association.

Other Costs
Other costs may be applicable depending on options that students select, such as non-compulsory residential camps, VET and VCAL costs.

Initial & Periodical Costs
All these costs occur at the beginning of secondary schooling and at other times as required.

Uniform
Each student must wear the College Uniform at all times, particularly when going to and from school and other occasions as directed. The approved sport Uniform must be worn for Physical Education classes, games and matches. A Uniform exchange shop provides used uniforms at reduced costs.

College Bag
Each student must possess and use an official College Bag.  These can be purchased from the Cashier's Office at the College.
