Attendance Dues:  (Payable to the Diocese NOT our school):

School Attendance Dues are set at $426.00 per child a year.

The Catholic Integrated Schools Office will send out invoices at the beginning of each year, and payments are to be paid directly to that office.

Payments are to be made out to R.C. Bishop of Hamilton – Diocesan Schools A/C.

Automatic payments can be arranged with the Catholic Integrated Schools Office. This money is used by the Diocese to fund building and capital works in schools.

The Diocese also asks for a $40.00 donation, per child, towards supporting the Catholic Character of our schools. This money is used to fund teacher’s professional development, and support for schools to develop and enhance Catholic Character.
