Financial Contributions & Attendance Dues

2024 Attendance Dues


Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020 and a condition of enrolment at Marcellin College. 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  Marcellin College on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, The Marist Brothers. The Attendance Dues collected by Marcellin College 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.
