Settlement of Payments

Any payments received by the school will be applied firstly towards 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 charged on all School Fees that are overdue. The school also reserves the right to give the places of students with overdue payment to new waiting applicants, meaning late payments put a child’s seat at risk.

Force Majeure

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:

  • While the force majeure event is ongoing, resort to online/virtual classes, homework assignments, and teacher-student/teacher- parent communications.
  • After the school is re-open for classes upon cessation of the force majeure event, the school will ensure full curriculum coverage.
  • When the school is able and permitted to resume normal business activities, hold extra classes or conduct special learning sessions/semester to ensure full curriculum coverage.

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 labour disputes and work stoppages, failure or interruption of transportation or other utilities, epidemic, fire, flood, earthquake, storm, tidal wave or other acts of nature.
