Prospective parents and guardians shall be informed of Majella Catholic Primary School’s schedule of fees and payment policy at the time of interview.

Following the acceptance of an interview, the principal shall ascertain if the student has any special educational, medical, social or emotional needs which will require differential resourcing if schooling is to achieve educational outcomes appropriate to the student’s learning needs.
