Diocesan Building Fund
The governing bodies of Voluntary Aided Schools are required to meet 10% of the cost of any new building work or maintenance of the exterior of existing school buildings. In the past this has been met through the weekly contributions given in the parish collections.
Our schools exist because of the generations of Catholics who have made sacrifices to support them. However, in many schools it is now only a minority of parents or guardians who contribute in this way. As a result, the Diocese has set up a building fund to ensure that all parents and guardians contribute towards the upkeep of our family of schools. We ask for a donation of £8 per child or £15 per family.
