* Attendance duesPlease note: The full year’s balance of attendance dues ($1,840.00) is charged at the beginning of the year rather than on a termly basis.
** Day girls’ midday mealsAt Iona, the sharing of the midday meal around a table by day girls and boarders acts as a unifier and the dining room is a place of community. This event is also an important aspect in maintaining the Special Character of Iona and for this reason all day girls participate. In addition to the provision of a delicious and nutritious lunch with multiple choices, the cost of day girl lunches also provides for fresh fruit at morning tea and fresh baked biscuits, slices, cakes or fruit for afternoon tea and special events such as Christmas Dinner. All dietary requirements are catered for.
Please note, if you would prefer to provide your daughter with a packed lunch and afternoon tea from home, please contact the Principal in writing. It should be noted that all girls are required to consume their lunch in the dining room and that families who choose to opt out of the day girl lunch provision must do so in term blocks. Notification needs to be provided in advance of the school term so that this charge is not invoiced to the student’s account.

Payment of FeesFees are payable one term in advance to the College's Proprietors and should be paid on receipt of the statement sent at the start of each term.

It is the constant concern of the Iona College Council to minimise increases in costs while at the same time honouring their commitment to providing the highest quality of education.
Reduction for SistersWhere one parent or guardian is paying for two or more sisters who are students at the same time, a discount of 5% will apply and will be deducted from the standard fee content (not meals, medical charges and similar costs) at the time the account is rendered by the College Council (Proprietor).
Personal DisbursementsParents will receive a monthly account for their daughter’s personal expenses, e.g. stationery, additional resource books, admission charges for extra-curricular trips, bus/taxi fares and drycleaning.
