The Sisters of St Joseph are committed to providing clear guidelines in regards to the payment of fees. MacKillop house is a non for profit organisation. We will endeavour to keep fees as low as possible. This will be based on covering the cost associated with maintaining the House, and in particular the purchase of food supplies, electricity and Gas. Board is to be paid two weeks in advance throughout the year. Fees may be paid in cash, by cheque or as a scheduled payment via electronic transfer. There is no reduction in fees during semester breaks. Failure to pay outstanding fees will result in the review of the students contract.
