For those who like to get school expenses out of the way early, school donation, curriculum activities and swimming amounts are:

SCHOOL DONATIONS
To help supplement school funds, the Board of Trustees asks for a voluntary donation from each family annually. The suggested amount is $100 per pupil or $180 per family. These donations are used to purchase resources to support children’s learning.

The school donation is tax deductible which means you can claim one third back from Inland Revenue.

ACTIVITY COSTS
The ask for an Activity Donation of $100 per child per year (or $25 per term). These funds are used to cover activities and trips over the year.

SWIMMING COSTS
These are confirmed annually.
