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 

All students are required to sign the Attendance Dues form at the time of enrolment. Attendance Dues are compulsory and are approved by the Minister of Education under section 36 of The Private Schools Conditional Integration Act. The Attendance Dues are collected on behalf of the Proprietor and are used to repay the debt to the Government. 

St Paul’s College does not receive any of these proceeds. 

Attendance Dues And Financial Contributions 2020 Information

Attendance Dues are GST inclusive and do not qualify for the Tax Deductible Rebate. 

If your family is experiencing hardship, an application for financial assistance can be made with the Auckland Diocese Common Fund for Attendance Dues (note: this fund is only available for Preference Students.) Please click HERE to view ACFL (Auckland Common Fund Ltd) application form. 

General Purpose Financial Contributions 

General Purpose Contributions are voluntary and qualify for tax rebates/credits. 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.
