Catholic Character Contribution
This is $50 per child per year, with a maximum of $150 per family of 3 or more children, and is used by the Diocese for the running of the schools' section of the Pastoral Resource Centre.
Among the many functions of the PRC is the organising of religious education courses for teachers and acting as advisors to schools. This is a voluntary payment and is collected by the Diocese Office. The contribution is tax deductible.
