Affordable and all inclusive...
The Board of Carinya Christian School is resolved to make Christian Education affordable for as many families as possible. Since 2014 Fees at Carinya have either reduced or remained the same. Over the same time the cost of goods and services in Australia has increased by 5.6%. The Board and School Executive remains committed to:
ensuring fees are affordable
the continued development of our school facilities
supporting the work of our faithful teachers and staff
The Annual Fee is made up of a Tuition Fee, a Infrastructure, Services and Resources Fee, and a Technology Levy. Combined, this provides for an all inclusive fee for parents.
A 2019 fee increase is planned for the Early Learning Program (currently $30 a day). With the continued growth of the school and the support of Gonski 2.0, no other increases are planned for the foreseeable future.
50% Prep to Kindergarten rebate...
Families whose children are enrolled in the Early Learning Program, and continue into Kindergarten the following year, will be eligible for a 50% rebate of the total Early Learning Program (Prep) fees paid. This rebate will be applied directly to the families School Fees Account at the start of the following school year to reduce the Total Annual Fees due for that year.
