I write to you with exciting news regarding our school fees for the 2023 academic year.
St Dominic’s School has been approved to reduce school fees as a result of changes to the overall funding model for Catholic schools in Western Australia. Our school and Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) are able to utilise a greater level of data to inform how we determine fees in a way that better matches our school and community’s unique context.
As a result, and in consultation with CEWA, our Catholic School Advisory Council endorsed a 7% reduction in tuition fees for 2023. The 2023 Schedule of Fees documents have been updated on our school website here and linked below for your reference.
The 2023 Annual Fee Statements will be emailed to families by Week 3, and will include details regarding the various ways in which to pay your fees.
Further discounts are available for holders of Low-Income Health Care Cards. To be eligible to claim this discount, the schools finance officer must sight and keep a copy of the card, and applicants must complete a HCC Tuition Fee Discount Scheme Form prior to Friday, 3rd February. A copy of the HCC Tuition Fee Discount Scheme Form is available on our website here, or via the link below. All required information should be forwarded to email@example.com.
Catholic education in WA provides an affordable school choice for more WA families than ever, and our school remains committed to providing the high quality, Christ-centred and child-focused education that our families have come to expect.
I hope families will welcome this news as indicative of our school’s commitment to meeting your family’s needs. We are strongly committed to delivering the highest quality education alongside our other programmes in 2023 and beyond.
If anyone has any questions in relation to this please do not hesitate to get in touch with our school finance officer, Sandra Raso.
I look forward to welcoming you all back to school on Wednesday, 1st February.
