Attendance Dues - Catholic Diocese of Hamilton

Attendance Dues are a compulsory charge by the Catholic Integrated Schools Office.  It is a charge for attendance at an integrated school and is one of the main sources of income for maintenance or upgrade of existing buildings. It is administered and collected by the Hamilton Diocese Office. Dues are not tax deductible.  If you have any questions about your Attendance Dues bill, or want to discuss payment options, please phone the Diocese team at 07 856 6989.

The 2024 Attendance Dues for secondary students are $992 per student, and a Special Character Levy of $50 per student.  

Voluntary Contributions / Donations - St John's College

The Board of Trustees requests a voluntary contribution or donation from all families so that all students can access the resources and facilities they deserve. The great majority of families accept the need to make this contribution which benefits all students. Contributions are tax deductible and you will be issued with a receipt.

Learning Contribution Request

This supports the very features of St John’s College that make it attractive to you as a parent:

  • extra teaching and learning support staff (over and above that funded by the government grant). Junior classes have learning assistants in the literacy and numeracy rich subjects, ensuring students hit their senior exam years well prepared. 
  • modern technologies that mean students learn in ways that are relevant to them and to their futures.

$600 per year for 1 student. For siblings attending in the same year -  $200/year for each additional sibling.

Building Contribution Request

This is collected on behalf of the Proprietor, the Catholic Diocese of Hamilton. It supports the provision of functional learning facilities on an attractive campus environment. Construction of the new indoor sports complex is an example of this, and the redevelopment of our Chanel Classroom Block. Our land and buildings are owned by the Catholic Diocese which means that the government funding we receive for continued development of buildings is less than what is provided to state schools. Many families before you have contributed to the Building Fund, and by choosing St John’s College it is now your turn to support these building developments.

In 2024, $400 per year / per family.

In 2025, $550 per year / per family.

SJC Foundation Request

The St John's College Foundation makes a difference in our young men's lives. It contributes substantially to the College's financial security, major facility upgrades and supports equal access to an excellent Catholic education through scholarships. It also organises alumni events and get-togethers for Old Boys, maintaining a lively connection back to the College for life.

You and your son will always be a valued part of our St John's College community, well beyond the high school years. Your donation supports the Foundation network, now and into the future.
