Year 4 students are required to participate in a compulsory Instrumental Music Program and a fee of $159 per student per term is charged for instrument hire and tuition.
After School Care and Holiday Club

Each year we offer a limited number of Bursary Awards for students enrolling into Senior Primary, Middle School and Senior School. Successful applicants receive a reduction in tuition fees (from 20–80%) while they are in their particular sub-school. That means that if a student is awarded a Bursary Award in Year 7, for example, it will continue throughout their Middle School education until the end of Year 9. Continuation of all bursaries is subject to both the student and family continuing to meet the requirements of the Bursary Award
Criteria for Bursary Awards
Bursary Awards are offered to families whose personal means would otherwise prevent them from enrolling at NCC. To apply for a Bursary Award, you will be required to undertake a means test and demonstrate academic ability and significant achievement in another area. Records of leadership and community service are also highly desirable.
Applying for a Bursary Award
Applications for Bursary Awards are accepted throughout the year. For more information or to apply, contact the College Registrar.
