In all Catholic schools where families are experiencing genuine financial hardship, concessions are available so that no child is denied a Catholic education for this reason.
However, Cairns Catholic Education has acknowledged the difficult economic conditions that the Dimbulah area is experiencing and has significantly reduced fees at St Anthony’s School, in support of the Dimbulah community. From 2019 all new and existing families at St Anthony’s School will pay a maximum of $400 per student per year ($100 per term) for Tuition Fees and School Levies, all-inclusive. As from 2023 a Fundraising levy of $100 per term, per family has been introduced.
Bus fares will also be paid by the school on behalf of students and the amount payable after the allowable rebate will be invoiced to families.
Accounts are sent out each term. Fees can be paid on a weekly/fortnightly/monthly or term basis according to your preference. Payment should be made at the school office. Please return the accounts with payment in order to ensure the correct account is receipted. School fees are due three weeks after the date of issue.
Payment options are available. Facilities are available for payment to be taken from a wage or bank account, or transfers can be made via internet banking. Please call into the school administration for further details.
