Donations and Fee Payments
This tax-deductible donation is used to pay for our full-time librarian, teacher aide support [to reduce class sizes] and if possible additional resources. After thorough consultation the BOT received overwhelming support to set the donation at the level necessary to meet the costs of the addition personnel and teaching resources.
The current donation is:
- $387 per year [$96.75 per term] for the first child
- $359 per year [$89.75 per term] for the second child
- $328 per year [$82 per term] for the third child
- The fee is capped at a maximum of $985 per family.
If your child starts school in the first half of a term, we will request payment for all of that term. If your child starts in the second half of a term, we will request payment for half of that term.
Our teaching programme includes activities and visits outside the school as well as performers and visitors brought into the school. To cover the costs of these events and activities there is an activity fee.
The fee for Year 0-4 students is, $25.75 per term per child [$103 per annum]
The fee for Year 5-8 students is $28.25 [$113 per annum]
The school needs to recover the costs of these expenses and 5% of these fees are to cover the annual costs for replacing Civil Defence Supplies.
Year 7 & 8 Enrichment Programme Fee
Our senior students are required to pay an additional $100 per annum fee to help offset the costs of their Enrichment Programme.
