Attendance Dues:

Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment under the terms of the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975 and a condition of enrolment at Pompallier Catholic College. Attendance Dues are charged for all students who attend Catholic Schools in New Zealand.

Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building works done at schools in the Auckland Diocese, property related costs including school building works, buildings insurance and costs directly associated with the administration of Attendance Dues.

Attendance Dues are collected by Pompallier Catholic College on behalf of the school's Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. The Attendance Dues collected by Pompallier Catholic College are forwarded to Auckland Common Fund Limited, a company established by the Proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland responsible for the collection of Attendance Dues.

Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term, or by regular installment.

Special Catholic Character Contribution:

The Catholic Special Character contribution is a voluntary donation of $12.50 per term ($50.00 per annum) per student.

This contribution provides the main source of funding for all services provided to Pompallier Catholic College by the Catholic Education Services Board. No contributions are made by the Government for these services.

The Catholic Education Services Board assists schools to provide a Catholic education for your child through the preservation and enhancement of the Catholic Special Character in our schools.


Please note: All tuition costs above apply to New Zealand Citizens only.


* A reduced parent contribution amount applies to families with two or more students attending the College. The parent contribution amount is tax deductible and a 33% refund of your donation can be claimed from the Inland Revenue Department.

Payment of accounts is required at the beginning of each term. Once a student commences a term, Attendance Dues and Financial Contributions will be payable for the whole term, even if that student should leave during the term. All school accounts must be paid in full by the end of the school year.

Payments may be made by cash, cheque, eftpos (credit cards not accepted), or regular automatic payments for ease of budgeting.

Statements are sent to families each month via email (or post if no email address is supplied).

If serious difficulties arise with payment of your account, parents may negotiate in confidence with Mrs Jane Woolston, Receptionist/Cashier, or the Principal.

The Board of Trustees reviews Financial Contributions annually.
