Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020 and a condition of enrolment at St Mary's Catholic School, Avondale. Attendance Dues are charged for all students who attend Catholic Schools in New Zealand.
Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building works done at schools in the Auckland Diocese, property related costs including school building works, buildings insurance and costs directly associated with the administration of attendance dues.
Attendance Dues are collected by St Mary's Catholic School on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. The attendance dues collected by St Mary's are forwarded to Auckland Common Fund Limited, a company established by the proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland responsible for the collection of attendance dues.

Primary Schools Years 1 - 8 $452 per year ($113.00 per term incl. GST)
