MacKillop Catholic College provides educational services and charges fees and levies to assist in the funding of the provision of these services on an equitable basis.
The setting of tuition fees and other charges for MacKillop Catholic College is the responsibility of the Tasmanian Catholic Education Commission. The level of fees charged annually is based on:
- The level of private income required to effectively maintain the services required by the College
- The general fluctuations of costs and prices within the community
- The limits of affordability of the families supporting the College.
MacKillop Catholic College aims to keep fees as inclusive as possible. We try to minimise additional payments that may be required throughout the year. Accordingly, tuition fees cover items such as:
- The purchase and replacement of class textbooks which are loaned to students
- Classroom materials and consumables used in all subjects including Art, Technology, Health and Physical Education, Catering, etc
- Class camps and excursions including bus hire and venue hire
- School competition entry fees
- Sports carnivals and training for school sports teams
- Extra-curricular activities provided by the College
- Reflection days, College feast days, liturgies, commissioning and thanksgiving masses
- Information and communication technology resources
Items that may be covered by additional levies include:
- Interstate or overseas trips (these trips are optional)
- Fundraising for charities
- Year 10 Graduation Dinner and leavers top
- Outdoor Education levy (elective subject)
- Other optional activities or excursions that may arise.
Tuition Fees for 2019 are:
- Year 7 $4,190.
