School Fees


Diocesan School Fees

Good Shepherd Primary School is a parish school under the support of the Catholic Education Office, Parramatta. School fees are charged in order to meet the costs entailed in administering schools and an attempt is made to keep fees as low as possible. Fees are set by the Diocesan Schools Board and are reviewed each year.
