The St Paul’s College Board of Trustees is responsible for collecting all Attendance Dues and Financial Contributions from parents/caregivers.

The St Paul’s College Board does this on its own behalf and on behalf of the Proprietor, St Paul’s College Limited, (owned by the Marist Brothers) and the Catholic Education Services Board.


Invoices/Statements are sent out to all families before the start of term and monies are payable one term in advance. 

Invoices/Statements are available on request. Tax Receipts can also be requested from the school as needed.

Attendance Dues 

Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020 and a condition of enrolment at St Paul's College. Attendance Dues are charged for all students who attend Catholic Schools in New Zealand.

Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building works done at schools in the Auckland Diocese, property related costs including school building works, buildings insurance and costs directly associated with the administration of attendance dues.  

Attendance Dues are collected by  St Paul's College on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, St Paul's College (Auckland) Ltd. The attendance dues collected by St Paul's College are forwarded to Auckland Common Fund Limited, a company established by the proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland responsible for the collection of attendance dues.  

Attendance Dues payable for 2020 school year:  

Y0 – Y8: $113.00 per term ($452.00 per year) including GST

Y9 – Y13: $222.00 per term ($888.00 per year) including GST

Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term or by regular instalment.

General Purpose Financial Contributions 

Financial Contributions collected on behalf of the Proprietor are permitted under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020. These contributions are voluntary and are eligible for a taxation rebate. The Financial Contributions for the Board of Trustees are used by the Board as a necessary supplement to the Operations Grant received from the Government in the general operation of the College. 

These funds are necessary to assist the school in providing additional resources, music, sport, co-curricula activities and to assist with regular maintenance of the College buildings and property for your son's education. 

If you are unable to afford the Attendance Dues and School Contributions, please speak with the Headmaster at the time of enrolment or contact the College to set up an appointment.
