Compulsory Contributions (Fees)
Moreton Bay Birali Steiner School Association Inc. is a not-for-profit association trading as Birali Steiner School and all School fees and levies are used for your child’s/children’s education and the provision of related facilities.

A condition of enrolment at Birali Steiner School is the regular payment of school fees and levies as they become due. The fees and levies collected at Birali Steiner School are used for the following purposes, which are essential in providing a high quality of education for your child/children:
- Providing teaching, administrative and grounds staff.
- Providing essential resources, materials, facilities and equipment.
- Providing an environment desirable for effective learning.
- Maintaining & increasing buildings, grounds and other facilities.
- Providing activities conducive to enriching the curriculum.
As per the signed Enrolment Contract (Letter of Offer), it is required that all school fees will be paid by the due date. Fees are due prior to the commencement of each term, unless otherwise indicated.

Whilst the school is required to charge fees in order to offer our services, we do endeavour to set these as low as possible. Regardless, many families will experience extenuating circumstances – typically due to injury, illness, death, family separation or job loss – where full fee payment becomes very difficult. During such times, the school would much rather support families through these times, than force students to leave the school during times of financial instability.
In order to apply our social responsibilities with regard to the above, the school has a Financial Hardship budget and processes for applying short term Fee Concessions at the school. As a not-for-profit, developing independent school, Birali is not able to offer discounted rates for pension/health care card holders or long term financial hardship concessions.
From 2023, Birali has partnered with Edstart to provide flexibility and support for families approved for a Fee Concession, with the service fee covered by the school. Please contact the Business Manager for further information.
