    Collection of Fees

    Catholic education is to be made available to all Catholic students whose parents seek a Catholic education for them, insofar as this is possible, while embodying the Church’s special preference for the poor and disadvantaged. Schools have a responsibility to communicate the financial constraints under which they operate, to parents enrolling their children in Catholic schools. Parents are asked to make a commitment to support Catholic education financially by paying fees.

    The Bishops of Western Australia have approved the collection of school fees from parents as a necessary contribution to the costs of delivering a Catholic education.
