The following amounts are an indication only of what parents/guardians may expect to pay as this will vary depending on the courses and activities the student may be involved in. An estimate of how much will be required monthly, fortnightly or weekly is also given as a guide for those wanting to set up a regular automatic payment to the school:

The fees and charges payable as identified above cover the following:
-Subject charges arising from the supply of workbooks, project based materials, online accessibility, field trips, etc on a cost-recovery basis.

-Extra-curricular participation (eg Duke of Edinburgh Awards)
-Boarding charges where applicable
-Old Boys Association Levy (voluntary)
The Voluntary Donations sought are for the Activities, Heritage and Proprietors Donations. These are voluntary.While we respect it being a decision by parents/guardians as to whether these donations are paid, we appreciate any payment made as they are a key source of funds for maintaining the facilities we have at St Patrick’s College, Silverstream and to support the extra-curricular activities undertaken by the College.
Additionally, parents/guardians pay an attendance due fee for each student enrolled at the College. This is not a charge made by St Patrick’s College, Silverstream but a charge made by the Archdiocese of Wellington and paid directly to them.
