Fee Relief during Covid-19

THE DIOCESE OF BROKEN BAY IS COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING FAMILIES AS THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 CONTINUES TO BE FELT IN THE COMMUNITY. NO FAMILY WILL BE EXCLUDED DUE TO FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY.

We are aware of the financial strain that COVID-19 is having on some families and its impact on their capacity to pay school fees. With this in mind, we would like to offer the following fee relief program:

  1. A full reduction on fees, building levies and school-based charges for any family in receipt of the JobSeeker payment. Please complete the 2020 Fee Relief Request form* and return to us at schoolfees@dbb.org.au
  2. A partial reduction of at least 50% on fees, building levies and school-based charges for any family where one parent member is in receipt of the JobKeeper payment. Please complete the 2020 Fee Relief Request form* and return to us at schoolfees@dbb.org.au
  3. Deferment of payment of any fees for any family who, under COVID-19 related financial stress, requests additional time to pay outstanding fees. Please complete the Request to Defer Payment form and return to us at schoolfees@dbb.org.au
  4. If you are unsure your circumstances fit the any of the above options please contact us at the Fee Liaison Unit on 9847 0728 for assistance between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. (Monday to Friday). Please also complete the 2020 Fee Relief Request form* and return to us at schoolfees@dbb.org.au
