Kavanagh College is a Decile 8 school and does not qualify for the Donation Scheme funded by the Government. Therefore, the College asks parents for a School Activity Contribution to help provide for extra resources which are not fully covered by government grants. This may include things like IT equipment and laptops/iPads for student use. The SAC is a voluntary donation. Upon payment, the school will issue a receipt and the donation can be claimed annually against income tax for a one-third refund.
The 2021 SAC levels are as follows:
Years 7 & 8 - $130.00, Years 9 & 10 - $150.00 and Years 11 to 13 - $180.00.
Families with more than 1 child at the College pay the full amount for the oldest child and 50% for each subsequent child. This levy does not cover field trips, organised sports, retreats or camps. Some specialist subjects attract additional fees (e.g. photography and physical education) to cover exceptional delivery costs.
