Why are fees at St Francis College so reasonably priced compared with metropolitan Colleges?

There are several reasons for this, including the fact that

  1. being in a regional area enables the College to operate more cost-effectively;
  2. all residents take turns at setting up for meals and cleaning up after meals, thereby cutting labour costs significantly;
  3. the College is subsidised financially by the Catholic Diocese of Wagga Wagga.
