Compulsory Levies

Capital Levy

The monies the College receives in relation to this levy are used to fund its annual capital expenditure requirements, this being exclusive of any capital funding requirements of the Master Plan process that the College is undertaking.

Annual capital expenditure requirements of the College include acquisition of information technology infrastructure and hardware/computers, various grounds and maintenance equipment, vehicles, significant items of sports equipment, minor improvements to existing classrooms and facilities, etc. 

Year Level Levy

The intention of the Year Level Levy is to specifically fund costs incurred in the provision of curricular, co-curricular and faith & service based programs and activities that relate only to students in particular year levels. 

Some of the major elements of the Year Level Levies are classroom technology requirements for year levels that are not yet required to provide a privately owned computer, additional costs for the APS sports program (including specialist sports coaches), outdoor education/expeditions programs, excursion and incursion costs, faith & service based retreats, compulsory music programs, etc.

Additional Levies and Charges

Additional levies and charges will apply in relation to students undertaking various non-compulsory activities such as musical instrumental lessons and group performances, musical instrument hire, artistic/creative arts performances, specialist sporting programs, camps, etc. 

Please see the below tables for currently known levies and charges regarding our music and sports programs. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
