Lower Income School Fee

To be eligible for the lower income annual school fee, you need to qualify as a low income family. This is determined by your family's gross income and is a $ value set by the State Government.

In 2021, your family's gross income needs to be below approximately $60,867 for a family with one school-age child. (The limit will vary depending on how many dependent children you have.)

Proof of income is required and applicants will need to apply via the State Government's School Card Scheme. Please note School Card approved lower income fee reduction is not applicable for Preschool fees.

School Card application forms are available from the Front Office. Further information and application forms are available via this link. All completed application forms are to be returned to the school for processing.

Our Finance Administrator can help you if you have any questions about applying for the lower income fee.
