Fees & Securing Placement
TUO kids lining up for the 2014 Triathlon

As we are a privately funded school we have a fees structure. These are to be paid at least 2 weeks in advance and are essential in allowing us to fully staff and operate our school.

SCHOOL FEES PROCEDURE:

  • Preschool $25.00 per school week. Hours 8am – 12pm or $40.00 per school week. Hours 8am – 2pm.
  • Primary School: $40.00 per school. Hours 8am – 2pm.
  • The first child pays a full fee. The second child receives a 10% discount. The third and subsequent children receive a 20% discount.
  • A 5% discount applies to fees paid at the start of year for the entire year. This offer only applies for the first month of the school year.
  • A 3% discount for early payment applies at the start of each term. This offer only applies for the first week of each term.
  • Fees secure your position on the roll and are paid ahead of time, regardless of days attended. There is no discount of fees where school is not open due to public holidays, government declared closures, or Force De Majeure (circumstances beyond our control).
  • To ensure your place, fees must be paid from the date of acceptance onto the school roll. A non-refundable deposit of $100 (Primary) and $70 (Preschool) per child is required upon gaining a place on the roll. $20 of this is an administration fee and the balance pays for the first two weeks of school fees.
  • An EOTC annual fee is also invoiced at the start of the school year of $40 for Years 4 to Year 8 and $25 for Pre-School to Year 3.
  • All Fees are to be paid at least 2 weeks in advance. Reminders of overdue fees will be sent home in the School newsletter, the school will make every reasonable attempt to make personal contact, and finally a letter will be sent home asking for acceptable arrangements for payment to be made. At all times the responsibility for ensuring fees are up to date are the responsibility of the family enrolled.
  • Families will be invoiced by the school office by the 2nd week of each term as a reminder. The Outstanding Overdue Fees Process will begin in Week 6 to Terms 1 & 2, Week 4 of term 3 and 3 of term 4.
  • All fees are expected to be paid regardless of a student’s attendance.
  • Should a parent not wish to pay their fees during an extended absence, they must notify the school before leaving. Failure to do so will result in the payment of fees in full prior to the child restarting.
  • Once the school has been notified, the child will be placed on a wait-list for the class at the parent’s request. In this instance the child’s position is not held open and the parent runs the risk of losing the position on the roll.
  • For children attending One Term or less the fees will be double the normal rate.
