The School Board has met to set the School Fees for 2018.
The Board is cognisant of the need to keep fee increases to a reasonable level so that our rates remain manageable for our school community. With this in mind, tuition fees and charges will increase by 2.5% in 2018. This is in keeping with other independent schools in our area and also with previous years’ increases.
The RC&M levy will remain at $400 per family per annum. Families will still be able to complete the 16 hours of approved Repair, Care and Maintenance work to the school each year (per family) in lieu of paying the levy. Note that the levy is charged at the beginning of the year and credited to your account once the required number of hours are completed.
Registration and Enrolment Fees will remain unchanged from 2017. Registration to enrol fees are $110 for the first child and $55 for each sibling. Enrolment fees are $550 for the first child and $200 for siblings.
Finally, there will be an increase of $100 per year to the Consolidated Charge forClass 12 students. This increase is necessary to meet some of the costs of the Edrolo program.
The Community Fee Assistance Program (CFAF) will remain in place for families experiencing short term financial difficulties and our Finance Manager is happy to talk with any families who are experiencing need.
The Board feels the school continues to offer an excellent education which is good value for money and we feel the fee increases for next year will adequately allow the school to continue to provide such a wonderful service for our children.
An updated fee schedule for 2018 will be available on our school website before the end of Term 3 2017.
