School Fees

The school is integrated into the state system and is thus publicly funded and does not charge fees for tuition for New Zealand residents. However it does have to charge parents for some costs not covered by the government.

◊ Kindergarten Fees
For children under five years old. They are necessary because early childhood education is only partially state funded. There is one four-hour session per day. The charges are as follows:

Kindergarten fees are legally binding and are required to be paid. Many parents will be able to gain the assistance of WINZ early childcare subsidy. Our Kindergartens are registered centres for this subsidy.

◊ Attendance Dues
For children five years and over. Because the school is privately owned, the Proprietor has a need to charge for mortgages over the land and buildings, and costs involved in bringing the school buildings up to state school minimum standards.

◊ Contribution to the Proprietor's Trust
For children five years and over.
Although essential to the provision of the special character of the school this contribution is technically speaking a donation. For tax purposes a receipt is sent out to parents at the end of the financial year.

These contributions cover:
Wages for additional teaching staff employed by the Proprietor to provide for subjects related to the special character of the school – eg: lower school handwork and eurythmy.
Part of the costs of the repairs and maintenance of the buildings and grounds.
Some administration staff.
Federation levy.
Relocation expenses for overseas recruited staff.
Staff development costs related to special character
Activity Fees
For all Lower School children (Years 1–8).
$7.50 per 1/2 year to cover swimming, concerts, plays etc.

◊ Course Materials
Some courses in the Upper School require the recovery of reasonable course costs. Stationery supplied is charged each term.
Class Camps: An important part of school life, most classes have a camp each year. Costs are communicated to parents as early as possible to allow them to be budgeted for.

◊ International Student Fees
