Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment and are approved by the Minister of Education under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020 and are a condition of enrolment at St Mary’s School. All students attending Catholic Schools in New Zealand are charged attendance dues.
Under the Act, Attendance Dues are used for servicing and repaying loans to develop new building projects in the proprietors’ schools as well as paying for building insurance and compliance costs, collection and administration.
Attendance Dues are collected by St Mary’s School on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. The attendance dues collected by St Mary’s School are forwarded to Auckland Common Fund Limited, a company established by the proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland responsible for the collection of attendance dues.
Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term or by regular automatic payments.
