- An acceptance letter will be sent to parents via email, followed by a hardcopy of the letter, school fees invoice and a Welcome Pack, containing further school information such as School Uniform Guideline. Parent(s) must then notify the School within seven days of receiving this letter by email, if they wish to accept this offer of placement, via “Acceptance of Place Form”, sent together with the acceptance letter.
- If the Enrolment Date is in advance, an invoice for the Registration Fee will be sent together with the acceptance letter. This fee must be paid via bank transfer within three weeks after an acceptance letter is sent from School, to secure a seat in the class for future enrolment. This payment applies to a child who has been issued a Provisional Acceptance. If upon conducting the Interview and Assessment, the child is not accepted, this fee will be returned.
- If accepted for mid-year entry, the child may enrol after a minimum of two full school days after the school receives the ‘Acceptance of Place Form’ from the parent, to allow the School to make necessary preparation. (e.g. When the ‘Acceptance of Place Form’ is submitted to School Office on Thursday, the child may start school on Tuesday.)
- Necessary documents required by the School (Medical Forms and Emergency Contact Form) must be completed and submitted by the first day of school.
- School Uniform must be purchased before the enrolment date. Uniform Guidelines will be provided after a seat in the class is confirmed.
- All School Fees must be paid prior to entry to the School. An invoice will be sent to the address indicated on the Application Form after the enrolment is confirmed by both the School and the parents.
All decisions made by the School in regard to eligibility, entry and admissions are confidential and final.
