School Fees


Fee Breakdown

Catholic schools aim to keep their fees as low as possible and can provide flexible payment arrangements for families. Students who meet enrolment criteria will not be refused enrolment because of a family’s genuine inability to afford school fees.

Other Fees

There is a family contribution (P & F Contribution) of $75 per family, which has been factored into the Annual School Fees figures shown above. This is being implemented at the request of the Parent Consultation Group who meet several times per year to discuss ways of having stronger parent involvement at Emmaus.

Refunds for non attendance will only be given for illness (Doctor's certificate required) or extenuating circumstances as approved by the Principal.

Some courses which for health and safety reasons, require students to purchase additional items which they own e.g. earphones for music, safety glasses for Design and Technology and Science.
