Letter from Bp Paul re: 2021 Attendance Dues Primary 2021

Attendance Dues, are not a donation.  They are used for capital costs, such as new classrooms and insurance, to which the Government does not contribute.  When you enrol your child at a Catholic school and sign the Preference Certificate, you “agree to pay the Attendance Dues, in full, on or before the due date, or to contact the parish Priest to enter into an agreement for payment.” All Attendance Dues collected by the Parish are paid on to the Diocese.

Special Character Contributions  help fund the provision of Catholic Special Character within the school.  This contribution is tax deductible.  A receipt for this can be obtained from the parish office.
