Edmund Rice Foundation

The Edmund Rice Foundation works to support the vision and mission of the Christian Brothers in the developing world and among socially and financially disadvantaged children, youth and families within Australia. This is made possible through your voluntary contribution, which will be included on your fee statement. If you do not wish to contribute, please indicate to the Accounts Department or simply short pay your account by $120 to initiate a reversal.


During September you will be sent a re-enrolment form for your son(s) for 2020. By completing this process you enable the College to forward plan for the new school year. The payment associated with re-enrolment is held in trust and is an advance payment of fees and is credited to your son’s Year 12 fees in accordance with our Advance Payment Scheme (APS). Re-enrolment for 2019 is approximately $545 per student. Late return of form and payment will incur a late fee of $50.
