They are directed towards supplementing Commonwealth and State Grants (which cover around 80% of the running costs of the schools) for the payment of teachers’ salaries, general running costs associated with the school and the administration of the Catholic Education Office, Parramatta.

Please note that sibling reductions for Diocesan School Fees only apply to those children attending Systemic Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta and St. Dominic’s at Kingwood or Systemic Schools in the Archdiocese of Sydney and Dioceses of Wollongong and Broken Bay.
