Fees & Donations
From time to time the Board of Trustees sets the level of the school donation and advertises it to parents. The amount is set as part of the board’s annual budget preparation. The school could not operate without this donation. Payment of the donation is voluntary.

In the past we have offered a 10% discount if the donation is paid in Term 1. Unfortunately the Ministry of Education has told us that we are not allowed to offer a discount as it implies the payment is compulsory. We apologise for any misunderstanding or confusion this has caused.
