Our Fees

Since the 2020 school year, our Board of Trustees has opted in to receive $150 per student, per year, if they agree not to ask parents and caregivers for donations.  While this doesn't cover the full cost of our learning program, we will no longer be billing parents for curriculum-related costs.

Attendance Dues will still need to be paid as well as stationary, opt-in activities, and school-related camps that aren't compulsory or directly connected to the curriculum program.

This is a compulsory charge levied by the Seventh-day Adventist Church as the school's proprietor in accordance with the Ministry of Education's approval.  The income is used solely for the purposes of maintaining and upgrading school facilities.  This charge is compulsory and children may be excluded from the school roll for failure to pay these fees.

Dues for the year 2022 are $147.50 (incl.gst) per child, per term. Parents need to have a term's dues up-to-date before commencing the next term unless arrangements have been made with the school.


Other Costs


All of your child's stationery needs are provided by the school and families will be charged $45 a year to cover the cost. 


All uniform costs can be paid off in full or over time by setting up a payment plan.  

School Bus Fees

This is a user-pays service to support families with school transport.  All School Bus fees need to be paid by the end of each term.   


Special Character
