The School has the right to settle any outstanding fees or amounts owed to the School, either during the student’s attendance at the School, or after the student’s departure, using the Deposit.

School Uniform

School uniform can be ordered from an outside uniform provider directly.

Settlement of Payments

Any payments received by the School will be applied first toward the Deposit, if not yet settled. Any outstanding payments must be settled according to the School Fees and deadlines above.

Late Payment Charge

A late payment charge of two percent (2%) per month, compounded monthly, will be applied to all School Fees that are overdue. The School also reserves the right to offer the place of a student with overdue payment to new waiting applicants, meaning that late payment may put a child’s seat at risk.

Force Majeure Clause

The parent/guardian understands and agrees that, if an event of force majeure (as defined below) occurs and as a result the School is prevented from performing any of its obligations towards the parent/guardian and/or students, including but not limited to school closure and reduction of student in-school learning hours, the school may implement any of the following alternative measures or any combination thereof to minimize interruptions of the students continued studying activities:

  1. While the force majeure event is ongoing, resort to online/virtual classes, homework assignments, and teacher-student/teacherparent communications;
  2. After the school is re-open for classes upon cessation of the force majeure event, extend the school hours on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, to make up the lost class hours; and
  3. When the school is able and permitted to resume normal business activities, hold extra classes or conduct special learning sessions/semester to make up the lost class hours.

For purposes of the foregoing provisions, an “event of force majeure” means an event beyond the control of the school, including but is not limited to, prohibition or acts by government or public agency, riot, war, hostility, terrorist attacks, public disturbance, strikes, other labor disputes and work stoppages, failure or interruption of transportation or other utilities, epidemic, fire, flood, earthquake, storm, tidal wave, or other acts of nature.
