We do not currently take a donation for attending the school, but all students are required to pay Attendance Dues.
Parents & caregivers are legally obliged to pay this, it is not a donation or voluntary payment. It represents the share of the overall costs each year of continuing to provide a Catholic school option for children in new Zealand.
The Bishops of this Diocese have consistently said that no-one from a Catholic family is to be denied access to a Catholic education due to inability to pay. In cases of difficulty talk to your parish priest or school principal, they can talk through your situation and help find options that match your circumstances.
