Half fees are available for four weeks per year for families who withdraw their children for holidays. Two weeks written notice must be given. “Change of Details” forms are available from the office.

When a child is absent due to sickness, regular fees apply for the first week and thereafter a 50% fee reduction will apply for a period determined by the Director. Medical Certificates must be provided.
