Schedule of Fees – 2011
The School’s Fee Policy
The School acknowledges the commitment made by many parents who have chosen to send their children to Kincoppal-Rose Bay School of the Sacred Heart. The School Board sets the fees at a level that enables the provision of excellence in teaching & learning and which ensures the effective functioning of the school. The major part of the annual budget is allocated to the payment of salaries to teachers and staff at the School. In addition, the
School must budget for ongoing maintenance, refurbishment and new building projects.
As the majority of the School’s annual recurrent income (85%) is derived from fees, it is vital that fees are paid on time to ensure the continued financial management of the
School. Various fee payment options to assist families in meeting this requirement are set out below.
In setting the fees for 2011, the School Board has taken into consideration the increase in recurrent education costs as measured by the Average Government School Recurrent
Index. These increased costs do not include an allowance for superannuation and capital works. School fees are also used to service long term debt which finances the improvement of facilities across the campus.
