St Stephen's Catholic School is a Parish school and finance for the maintenance and running of the school comes from:-
• School Fees and Levies
• State and Federal Government Grants
• Fundraising activities

The contributions from parents through payment of School Fees and Levies and participation in fundraising activities make up the difference between government funding (which covers about 76% of costs) and actual costs. No child, however, will be denied a Catholic Education because of a family’s inability to pay full fees. Parents who have a genuine reason for not meeting their commitment should approach the Principal to discuss the matter. All such approaches will be treated confidentially.
The Fees are reviewed and set by the School Board to service the annual School Budget. Click here to view the School Fees Policy.
