Sibling Discount

A discount on tuition fees is available for the second child in a family (20%), the third child (30%) and the fourth and subsequent children (40%) provided that the children are attending the school simultaneously.

Withdrawal of Student

It is a condition of entry that one full term’s notice of withdrawal of a student is given in writing to the Principal.  A full term’s fees will be charged in lieu of notice.

Cases of Hardship

Parents who encounter difficulties in paying fees, on account of unexpected hardship, are invited to discuss the matter with the Principal.

Bursary Assistance

Parents needing Bursary assistance are asked to contact Mrs. Terry Williamson, Registrar. Contact details are 9487-1277 or terryw@stlucys.nsw.edu.au.

Other Resources and Activities

There are some extra costs that parents will be asked to meet. These include uniforms, stationery, books (which St Lucy’s purchases on behalf of the parents) and in some classes activity costs for which your permission will be sought. Senior students will have one, and in the case of St John’s Satellite Class, two camps to attend, which are charged separately. Some classes will go on excursions for a relatively small cost. Students participating in interschool sporting competition and in after school classes will meet these costs separately.

Donations

Parents are reminded that St Lucy’s School fees are kept artificially low to ensure that parents on low incomes are not prevented from having their child attend. The result is a large operating deficit which St Lucy’s fills by asking for donations. We encourage parents who are able to pay more, to do so via a donation accompanying the fees. Donations are tax deductible.
