As you can appreciate, we too must pay our bills. Each Fee Payer is required to either pay fees in full within 30 days of the invoice date or alternatively enter into a regular payment arrangement by returning the completed School Fee Agreement within 30 days of the invoice date.  While term payments are preferred, the College is open to flexible payment arrangements as follows:

Years 7 and 8 $240.00 $480.00

Years 9 and 10 $245.00 $490.00

Year 11 $250.00 $500.00

Year 12 (completed by September) $312.50 $625.00

Please note the above repayment schedule is based on standard tuition only and does not account for subject levies and additional costs. Any fees in arrears for 2021 will be added to this schedule. To accurately calculate your individual repayments please utilise the School Fee Repayment Calculator at

If families have not entered into an arrangement with the College for this year or commenced a payment option (see above) by the end of February, they will be required to pay their fees in full within 30 days of the invoice date.

Further to the standard tuition fee, the College charges a consumables levy for the following subjects:

Years 7 to 10: Agriculture, Design and Technology, Food Technology, Graphics Technology, Industrial Technology Metal, Industrial Technology Timber, Photography and Digital Media, Technology Mandatory and Visual Arts.

Years 11 and 12: Agriculture, Construction Pathways, Design and Technology, Hospitality, Metals and Engineering, Photography and Digital Media and Visual Arts.

A senior student undertaking a TVET Course (at TAFE) will be levied an annual fee per year to off-set the considerable costs of TAFE courses.

As per the College Laptop agreement, Parents/Carers share the cost of laptop repairs required during the school year. Parents/Carers may be billed for the cost of replacement parts, with the College paying freight and labour costs.
