Compulsory Fees and Levies
The intention of our Program Fees are 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 Program Fees are outdoor education/expeditions programs, additional costs for the APS sports program (including specialist sports coaches), classroom technology requirements for year levels that are not yet required to provide a privately owned computer, excursion and incursion costs, faith & service based retreats, compulsory music programs, etc.
The monies the College receives in relation to this levy are used to fund its annual capital expenditure requirements. Annual capital expenditure requirements of the College include facilities improvements, 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.
