St Michael’s School exists for the primary purpose of providing Catholic children from the Parish of St Joseph’s Bassendean with a Catholic Education.

Thus the priority for enrolment is:

  • Siblings of students already at St Michael's.
  • Catholic students from St Joseph’s Parish.
  • Catholic students from outside the parish.
  • Non-Catholic students from other Christian denominations.
  • Other non-Catholic students.

Please complete the Application forms and return them to the school, with all necessary accompanying paperwork, if you are interested in enrolling your child at St Michael’s. Please be aware that completion of the Application form will not guarantee a place in the school, it is an expression of interest to be considered for enrolment only.

A non-refundable application fee of $55 is payable upon submission of your application form.

Upon acceptance of enrolment, an acceptance fee of $150 is payable to secure your place, however, this is refundable off school fees.

School Fees

The provision of Catholic education to all is made with an awareness of the constraints imposed by financial considerations affecting the functioning of Catholic schools. As parents we are therefore asked to make a commitment to support the school by paying fees on time.

As from 2005, parents/guardians who are responsible for the payment of school fees and hold a current means tested family Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card with the code “PPS”, will be entitled to a discount on tuition fees. Maximum tuition fee to be paid by eligible card holders in 2010 is $200 per annum. Application to be made at the office.

The discounted tuition fee does not cover additional charges such as camps, the compulsory building levy and subject levies.

Accounts are sent home at the commencement of each term, and can be paid either annually or on a term-by-term basis. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, direct debit and Eftpos/Visa facility. Direct debit is the preferred option by the school. Other more flexible payment arrangements can be made by negotiation with the Principal. Any parents experiencing difficulty with the payment of school fees need to contact the Principal.

View a copy the current School Fees.

The inability to pay school fees shall never be the reason for the exclusion of any child from St Michael’s. All information pertaining to the payment of school fees will be treated as confidential.

To ensure this confidentiality, members of the Board are not advised of individual family names.
