School Fees and Levies

​​​​​​​​​​St Ignatius School endeavours to charge families a just and equitable fee each year, based on the minimum fee set by Brisbane Catholic Education.  Families of two or more children receive a discount on their account.  Fees accounts are sent home at the beginning of each term. 

As well, once during the year, parents are requested to pay certain levies which cover resources used by their children, the cost of materials used in lessons, and a Parents and Friends’ Association levy.

All families will receive term accounts and all are encouraged to pay fees.  However, any difficulty, or inability to pay school fees should not prevent any child from receiving an education at St Ignatius School.  Such difficulties should be discussed with the Principal and confidential alternative arrangements made.

If you require assistance with paying your school fees, please contact the Principal along with completing this Fee concession form.​ We welcome benefactors who may like to contribute towards another family's fees. Please contact the Principal if you are interestI ed.
