Archdiocese of Wellington Attendance Dues
Parents/caregivers will be invoiced by the Archdiocese of Wellington at the beginning of each term. Payment of Attendance Dues must be made directly to the Archdiocese of Wellington bank account (refer to their invoice).
Attendance Dues are required to be paid under the terms of the Integration Act and are determined annually by the Catholic Education Office and approved by the Minister of Education.
Attendance Dues go into the Archdiocesan Common Fund together with Attendance Dues from other Catholic schools in the Archdiocese. Funds are used primarily to service the historical and ongoing debt incurred by Catholic Schools to cover the cost of building improvements, as they form part of a collective arrangement of Catholic Schools which Sacred Heart College has been part of for many years. Attendance Dues do not contribute to the day to day operational costs of Sacred Heart College.
To contact the Archdiocese of Wellington - phone 04-499 0184 or send an email (the email address is in the Attendance Dues Information brochure linked below).
These payments are not handled by the College.
In the event of financial hardship an interview with our Rebates Committee can be obtained through the College office.
