St Paul's strives to keep school fees competitively priced. Built into the fee structure is a generous sibling discount. An across campus annual discount of $1,000 is available for families who have students at St Paul's Lutheran Primary School and Grace Lutheran College. Payment plans and direct debit arrangements can be set up and can be discussed with the Business Office. The 2020 fees are:
|Tuition Only||Annual Rate||Term Rate|
|2nd child||$2,842.00||$ 710.50|
|3rd child||$2,030.00||$ 507.50|
Fees cover the cost of tuition but not school excursions, camps, transport for sport, stationery, texts, external competitions, external diagnostic and support services, and musical instrument tuition. Every effort is made to keep fees as low as possible. However, the school's costs rise and a review of school fees is conducted towards the end of each year. All transactions are processed in AUD.

Annual Payment discount
A $150 discount applies per student charged tuition fees to those families that pay their annual fees by 21 February 2020.
Unannounced or Mid-Term Departures
When a student is to be withdrawn from the School, parents/guardians are required to give the School a term’s notice in writing before the withdrawal date. In the event of such notice not being given, fees for the following term become due and payable in full.

St Paul's has plans for further building projects in the future. The School Council believes that parents should have an opportunity to contribute something towards these developments if they are financially able to do so. For this reason, a Building Fund Levy is itemised on each fee notice at the amount of $75 per family per term. You may choose to pay the annualised amount of $300.00 at the commencement of the year. ALL PAYMENTS TO THE BUILDING FUND ARE VOLUNTARY. Payments to the fund are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and separate receipts are issued for this purpose. Please consider what you can afford to donate. No amount is too small.
