Fees statements are emailed monthly, with the first sent towards the end of February to allow for the roll to be settled and any last option changes confirmed.
School Fees are made up of four components – Attendance Dues, Special Character, School Contribution and Building Fund.
The compulsory Attendance Dues are collected by the school on behalf of the Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. All Dues collected are sent to the Auckland Common Fund, the Diocese’s department responsible for collection. Dues are a compulsory payment under the terms of the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975.
The 2022 Fees are as follows:
Years 9 - 13:
Full Year = $2413 or $1743 sibling (includes $916 compulsory Attendance Dues)
Years 7 & 8:
Full Year = $1965 or $1295 sibling (includes $468 compulsory Attendance Dues)
Details of all the year’s fees will appear on each statement and parents can choose to pay instalments fortnightly, monthly or quarterly each term so as to be fully paid by the end of the Term 4.
Voluntary Covid-19 Donation
In this year’s financial account statement, we have reluctantly added a voluntary $250 donation – one per family on the eldest child's account. This request is being made to help us alleviate the significant financial shortfall caused by the impact of Covid-19. We are endeavouring to maintain the same level of teaching and learning support in 2022 as we have in the past without significantly impacting on other reserves. We thank you for your kind consideration of this voluntary donation. Mr Cooper, Headmaster
Payment for all KAMAR account charges can be paid directly through the KAMAR Parent Portal. These payments are made by credit card only and will incur a 1.8% automatic surcharge. The portal allows for flexible amounts to be paid.

Payments other than School Fees
Information relating to other payments such as class trips, sports fees, music, exams etc. will be emailed or by notice sent home with your son. This correspondence will outline the "what, where, when & how" of the event. It will also include the various ways which you can pay. These costs are charged to your account as they fall due throughout the year.
If you have any questions related to school fees, payment options or any other school finance matters, please email [email protected]. We are happy to help.
The following is a message from the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland's Office regarding the Special Character and Dues component of our school fees:
Special Catholic Character Contributions
The Catholic Special Character contribution is a voluntary donation of $12.50 per term ($50.00 per annum) per student.
This contribution provides the main source of funding for all services provided to Rosmini College by the Catholic Education Services Board. Special Character Contributions collected on behalf of the Proprietor are permitted under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020. These contributions are eligible for a taxation rebate.
No contributions are made by the Government for these services. Financial Contributions collected on behalf of the Proprietor are permitted under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020. These contributions are eligible for a taxation rebate.
The Catholic Education Services Board assists schools to provide a Catholic education for your child through the preservation and enhancement of the Catholic Special Character in our schools.
Attendance dues are approved by the Minister of Education under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020.
Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building works done at schools in the Auckland Diocese, property related costs including school building works, buildings insurance and costs directly associated with the administration of attendance dues.
Attendance Dues are collected by Rosmini College on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. The attendance dues collected by Rosmini College 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 payable for 2022 school year:
Y7 – Y8 $117 per term ($468 per year) including GST
Y9 – Y13 $229 per term ($916 per year) including GST
Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term or by regular instalment.
More information is available from our school accounts team who can be emailed at [email protected] or contacted through 09 489 5417 if you require further information or need any assistance.
Financial assistance is available to assist families who may need financial support with the payment of Attendance Dues for preference students attending Catholic schools in Auckland Diocese, both primary and secondary.
