General all school excursions including Year 7 to 10 Retreat days are now included into the Tuition Fees amount.

Fees for external sporting events & other non-compulsory events however will be charged separately if a student wishes to attend.

Unless a prior arrangement has been made with either the Principal or the College Finance Support Officer, all accounts are expected to be finalised promptly.

Family Reduction

A reduction of fees is granted when a family has three or more children attending the College.  Where there are three children, the third child will receive a 60% reduction, where there are four or more children, the third will receive a 60% reduction and there is no charge for subsequent children. Consideration will also be given to families with more than two children enrolled at O’Connor Catholic College and the Catholic feeder schools to O’Connor.

Notification of Withdrawal of Students

Parents are expected to give one month’s notice, in writing, if they are intending to withdraw students from the College.  Failure to do so may render them liable for a full term’s fees. An Exit Form for this purpose can be obtained from the College office.

Building Levy

The facilities at O’Connor are maintained through the contribution of families to the Building Levy. These can be existing parents of students, pensioners, or parishioners with no connection to the College.
