Sports Fees 2012

The school establishes a sports budget annually to pay staff salaries, membership of School Sport Canterbury programme and to subsidise sporting activities.

A ‘user pays’ regime covers the balance of funding necessary.

Parents and caregivers will not incur the fees if a pupil notifies the team coach or Head of Sport of their withdrawal from a sport or team prior to the second scheduled game, or by the end of the first week of the commencement of that sport.

Base Fee

The family of any Year 9-13 pupil registered to participate in a sport extra-curricular activity will be charged an annual base fee of $5.00 per pupil for general overheads (postage, photocopying, advertising, office administration, etc.).

Sport Specific Fee

·     Entry

·     Equipment
