Important Notice regarding Attendance Dues fees to the BOP

The Board of Proprietors (BOP) is a board appointed by the Society of Mary and is responsible for the upkeep of the land and buildings and the special character of St Bede’s College. The BOP charge a levy called Attendance Dues, which pays for the upkeep of school land and buildings. This levy is not eligible for a donation rebate as it is a compulsory fee as defined under the Integration Agreement St Bede’s College has with the Ministry of Education.

The College is well underway with the undertaking of the rebuild of some of the facilities lost in the Canterbury earthquakes. Given there is no state funding for these buildings, the projects are largely being funded from borrowings. The insurance proceeds from the earthquake have been fully applied to demolition, strengthening, refurbishment and new build works.

The Attendance Dues will be increased at the commencement of the 2019 year and will be as follows:

· $1,463.95 inclusive of GST per annum (an increase of $318.55 per annum or $80 per term). Further increases will be determined by the start of Term 3 each year, if required, but in any case the current maximum the fee can be increased to is $1,897.50 inclusive of GST. This is the maximum level approved by the Ministry of Education but the Proprietors wish to keep the fee as low as possible.
· The Contribution to Proprietors will increase from $160 to $190 per annum.
· The Building Levy will increase from $625 per annum to $750 per annum.

The Contribution to proprietors and Building levy are also considered donations and are eligible for the 33.33% donation rebate with Inland Revenue each year.

• School fees are charged at the beginning of the year for the entire year and a statement will be sent out within the first few weeks of Term 1.
• The figures quoted above are an estimate only, and do not include fees or charges for school trips, sports clubs or some classroom consumables. In some instances, these fees are required to be paid before the activity takes place. If this is going to cause hardship, please contact Madeleine Castle mcastle@stbedes.school.nz.
• It is possible to set up a second AP to cover these incidental charges, historically a figure of $500.00 has been a fair estimate. However, the exact amount to pay is entirely dependent on your son’s involvement in the St Bede’s College community.
• We request that School Accounts are cleared by the end of the school year, however, if this will not be possible, please contact Madeleine Castle mcastle@stbedes.school.nz.
