* Attendance Dues

Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment under the terms of the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975 & a condition of enrolment at Liston College. Attendance Dues are charged for all students who attend Catholic Schools in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Liston College collects these dues on behalf of the school’s proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland & forwards them to Auckland Common Fund Ltd, a company established by the proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland.

Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building work done at schools in the Auckland Diocese & other property related costs including insurance, building works & the costs directly associated with the administration of attendance dues.

Attendance Dues for the 2023 school year:

Years 7- 8              $488.00 including GST
