College charges and donation requests are sent to parents on a monthly basis. We welcome automatic or regular payments and have a number of payment options available. We ask that all charges are cleared by 31 October of each year.

Extra Curricular Charges

Sports or after school activity charges should be paid quickly please, by the due date indicated from each code. These are compulsory payments if your son has chosen to participate.

Voluntary Contributions / Donations

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 in particular 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). We pride ourselves on having smaller class sizes than many of the alternative schools available to your son.
  • 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 student.

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. 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.

$250 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.

$20 per student

How do we record your payments?

If you provide a specific reference for your payment, then we apply your payment against that charge.

If it is unspecified (or the reference doesn't tally with your charges) then we apply your payments against any outstanding subject and extra-curricular charges on your account. If there are no outstanding charges, then we apply your payment against our Learning Contribution Request, and then against our Building Contribution request.

We recommend you use the Kamar Parent Portal to keep an eye on your account - it provides the best view of your payments and any outstanding charges, and is an easy way to make payments. We email an invoice /statement to parents on a monthly basis.


If you have any questions about your College bill please contact our Finance team - [email protected] or phone the College Office.

The Attendance Dues is a compulsory charge invoiced from, and payable to, the Catholic Integrated Schools Office. 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
