As we approach the end of another school year, I would like to thank you for continuing to partner with a Swan Christian Education Association school for your child’s education.
I write today to draw your attention to the release of the 2017 school fee schedules, which have now been set by the SCEA Board.
In line with our vision we strive to keep our fees as low as possible and we are pleased to share that our 2017 fees have been restricted to an average increase of 3.3%.
We appreciate that any fee increase in the current economic climate is challenging, however, we are working diligently to control our costs while striving to deliver a quality education program, and ensuring our academic staff are well remunerated to deliver innovative learning in our classrooms.
We believe that an average 3.3% increase, which is a historically low number, is a positive outcome.
Furthermore, the Future Learning Fund contribution remains unchanged. This fund, which contributes to the facilities that support and enhance our students’ learning, is also subject to the same significant family discount rate that applies to tuition fees.
Please note that statement estimates will not be sent in December as in previous years. Please refer to your school’s fee schedules for the cost of compulsory tuition programs for 2017. Annual statements will be sent in late January, 2017.
We wish you a blessed Christmas and a joyful and safe holiday and we look forward to a productive and fulfilling New Year together.
