SCHOOL FEE POLICY AND PRACTICE
The Bishops of Western Australia have approved the collection of school fees from parents as a necessary contribution to the costs of delivering a Catholic education. Although Catholic schools receive government assistance, fees constitute an essential proportion of the school income.
Leschenault Catholic Primary School is committed to providing a sound Catholic education for students by facilitating each child’s development in a supportive, encouraging environment. In so doing, the School aims to keep fees to a minimum so that parents will be encouraged to enrol their children without undue hardship.
The inability to pay school fees shall never be the reason for the non-enrolment or exclusion of any child from Leschenault Catholic Primary School. Confidential arrangements can be made with the Principal if there is financial difficulty.
