Advance Payment
If the entire annual fee is paid in full by 29 March 2019, there will be a 5% discount available on the Tuition Fee element. This is in recognition of the assistance advance payment gives to the College’s cash flow. The discount is unavailable for fees which are already receiving discounts other than Sibling Discount.

Families in Financial Difficulties (including School Card eligibility)
The College’s fee policy ensures that all students are given the opportunity to succeed by offering:

  • Family Discounts
  • Significant fee remissions for families on low income

Families Eligible for Schoolcard
Based on the recent announcement by the State Government in moving the eligibility threshold for Schoolcard the College will be undertaking a review of its fee policy. We anticipate this review to be completed by the end of the year with the outcome communicated to you in due course.

Families Not Eligible for Schoolcard
Families who do not qualify for School Card, but who feel they would have difficulty in meeting the fee payment requirements due to their circumstances, may qualify for partial fee remission. Please contact the Business Manager (Mr Johnny Ioannou) on 8392 9500 to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation.

All discussions and arrangements are in the strictest of confidence.

Students who are absent from school for extended periods of time due to illness, injury or other reasons (eg travel or family commitments) are still liable for payment of full tuition fees for the period of their absence.

Withdrawing from Cardijn College
A notification period of one term must be given prior to a family withdrawing a child from the school. A term’s fee will be charged if a child is withdrawn without the required notification.

From time to time there are circumstances which prevent a family from giving adequate notification. The Principal or Business Manager, at their discretion, may waive the one term notification period.  However your request must be presented in writing.
