Information on Fee Remission

 

Fee Remission and Daily Living Subsidy

In addition to the fee remission scheme adopted for all students with financial needs, the School also offers these girls a Daily Living Subsidy capped at $6,000 a year for enrichment opportunities as well as for lunch and uniform provision. The subsidy, awarded proportionally according to the level of fee remission offered to each successful applicant, can be employed for the recipients' participation in ECA or OLE activities, and / or uniform purchase and school lunch ordering, and is deducted upon actual expenditures within one school year.

 

Fee Remission

Students with financial needs, including those from families receiving the CSSA and students receiving assistance provided by the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency (WFSFAA), could apply for school fee remission.  Those who qualify for fee remission may write a letter of request to the Headmistress to apply for the scheme and submit it through the School Secretary.

A full set of the fee remission documents will then be passed on to the applicant. The application form and all other relevant documents required should then reach the School Secretary as soon as possible for follow-up action. 

 

Details about the scheme:

The eligibility for receiving financial assistance from the Scheme is dependent upon the level of ‘Annual Family Income’ and the total number of ‘Family Members’. This is set out in Table 1. (See below).

In a single-parent family, the total number of ‘Family Members’ is, for the purpose of calculation, increased by one additional member.

The School will also consider, on a case-by-case basis, applications from families with special / urgent financial needs and families with more than five ‘Family Members’ (according to the definition specified in the School Guidelines).

The ceiling of the deductible amount of medical expenses for each family member who is chronically ill or permanently incapacitated is $21,780 per year in 2020/21.
