Diocese of Lismore Catholic Schools Enrolment Policy and Fees
The continued provision of quality Catholic Education for all students at St Brigid's Primary School requires that all parents assume responsibility for the payment of school fees and levies as they fall due. Parents accept this responsibility upon their child enrollment at St Brigid's Primary School.
However, understanding the values underpinning this policy, the school makes provision for families experiencing genuine financial hardship to negotiate a payment option that is mutually acceptable to both the family and the school. These negotiations are strictly confidential.
Fees are set each year by the Parish Finance Council in consultation with the Principal. They will be adjusted annually to reflect rises in the CPI or school costs.
