School Fees

​​​​​​​​​We at Mary Immaculate School are committed to providing a Catholic education for all children whose parents desire it.

We aim to provide a holistic education based on Catholic values through a partnership with parents, teachers and staff, the community, Brisbane Catholic Education and Government agencies.  To provide a quality education we rely on Government funding and school fees. Please see below for a list of our fees and what is included.

The Tuition Fee includes the Archdiocesan Education Levy and Catholic Futures Fund paid to Brisbane Catholic Education. The Archdiocesan Education Levy contributes towards resources provided by Brisbane Catholic Education for all schools in the Archdiocese and the Catholic Futures Fund contributes towards​ future schools in the Archdiocese.

At Mary Immaculate Primary, we rely on all families to contribute. It is expected that families adhere to the fee schedule. We recognise that at times some families will experience financial difficulties, where families find it necessary to seek a fee concession, the Fees Concession Policy will be followed.

Where accounts remain unpaid after the due date and no appropriate arrangements have been made to pay the agreed fee, the account may be placed in the hands of a debt collector.
