Fees and Allowances

College Fees

Boarding Fee

The boarding fee is set by the Country High Schools Hostel Authority and covers a students room, meals and pastoral care.

Boarding costs are substantially reduced for families eligible for financial assistance through a
number of State and Commonwealth Government schemes. It is a condition of enrolment that
financial assistance is paid direct to the residential college.

When do payments have to be made?

This will depend on what type of financial assistance you may be recieving. See the Parent Handbook and fees and allowances document for more information.

Jerramungup Bus Run

A bus run from the College to Jerramungup, Ongerup and Borden was introduced at the request of parents.  It operates on closed weekends and at the start and end of terms except at the beginning and end of the year.

All families living on that route are levied per annum for having the bus operate at those times (minimum nine trips).  This levy is compulsory and must be paid for the run to be viable.  The bus needs to pay for itself.


An Amenities fee is payable with term fees to facilitate payment of some sporting fees, community function admissions, upkeep of computers etc.


From time to time College staff undertakes camps, excursions or day trips as an additional service to the students.  Student participation is voluntary and parents will be levied a one-off fee for each occasion

Financial Assistance

Schemes that may be able to provide assistance include:

Assistance for Isolated Children form
