School Fees

School Fees

The total cost of education for a student at Mater Dei Catholic College remains at a level that still sees Catholic Education accessible for the vast majority of those we are called to serve. The current fee schedule, which  includes the cost of the Technology Levy, can be found here.

A deduction of 5% is applied to all accounts paid in full for the school year by 21 March.

Course Fees and Excursions

In addition, the College charges a consumables levy for the following subjects:

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

Years 11 and 12: Business Services, VET Construction Pathways, Design & Technology, Food Technology, Hospitality, Information Technology, VET Metals & Engineering, Photography & Digital Media, Software Design and Development and Visual Arts.

A senior student undertaking a TVET Course (at TAFE) will be levied $500.00 per year to off-set the considerable costs of TAFE courses.

Excursion costs may also be levied for some elective courses with approximate costs included in the relevant Subject Handbook.
