Diocesan Building Levy

The Diocesan Building Levy enables us, through our capital works program, to meet the demand for new schools and new classes in high growth areas, and to continue to maintain all schools to a high standard. All families with one or more children in a Parramatta Diocesan school (or at St Dominic's College Kingswood) are required to pay the annual Diocese of Parramatta Diocesan Building Levy.
