Tuition Costs 2021


Tuition costs are made up of: Financial Donations, Attendance Dues and Special Catholic Character Donations.

Specific event activity costs e.g. camps/retreats, EOTC trips, sports activities, music lessons, specialist subject costs etc, are requested seperately at the time of the event.

Attendance Dues:

Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment, approved by the Minister of Education under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020, 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.

Information on Parent / Caregiver responsibilities for the payment of Attendance Dues can be found here. Further information and/or assistance is also available from the school office (phone 09 438 3950 ext 0).

Special Catholic Character Donation:

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

Special Character Donations collected on behalf of the Proprietor are permitted under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020. This donation provides the main source of funding for all services provided to Pompallier Catholic College by the Catholic Education Services Board. These donations are eligible for a taxation rebate from the Inland Revenue Department.

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 apply to New Zealand Citizens and Residents only.

* A reduced parent donation amount applies to families with two or more students attending the College. The parent donation amount is tax deductible and a refund of up to 33% 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 will be payable for the whole term, even if that student should leave during the term. All school accounts should be paid by the end of the school year.

Payments may be made by cash, 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 Donations annually.
