  1. Re-Enrolments


In order to secure a place in class for the following academic year, parents/guardians will be asked to pay a re-enrolment fee which is due by 20th January each year.

The written notice to the Principal must be received at the School by 9.00 am on the first day of the final attending term. Any notice received after this time will render parents/carers liable for (another) full term of fees.

Where a parent/guardian believes financial circumstances have arisen that will prevent or delay the payment of the school fee account, a variety of options are available:

a. Extension of Time

If an extension is required, please contact the Principal  prior to the due date.

All payment plans must ensure that the account is cleared prior to  the last day of the school year or as negotiated with the Principal. 

c. Fee Concession

In cases of financial hardship an application may be made for a fee concession. 

  • Concession applications are usually accepted at the commencement of each year or at any other time in exceptional cases. 
  • Concessions are issued for a maximum period of 12 months within a calendar year.
  • Concessions are only applied to Tuition Fees and are valued at 10% and up to 75% of the full cost of Tuition Fees. 
  • Applications will be assessed according to need and will be subject to the student’s contribution to the class and their family’s contribution to the school. 
  • Consideration for the subsequent 12-month period will require a new application. 


A compassionate and just approach under the ethos and values of Taqwa School is used when reviewing applications.


Concession application forms are available from the office. Parents may be requested to supply supporting documents to attach to their application. Parents/Guardians who are granted Fee concession are required to provide evidence of ongoing financial hardship at the beginning of each term. All matters are dealt with on a confidential basis. Parents must not disclose the concession agreement to any parent or third party.


Parents/Guardians who apply for a fee concession must maintain concession attendance requirements. Students who take more than 5 consecutive days leave at any one time without a supporting medical certificate or take extended leave of greater than 5 days with or without principal approval will lose their concession entitlement.



  1. Responsibilities
