A qualifying test of observation will be administered to the child to determine his/her proper placement. All requirements must be forwarded before the child starts school.

Once admission is confirmed, payment should be made within two weeks of confirmation. Please note that the school management reserves the right to refuse admission to any child or ask parent withdraw the child from the school if necessary.

All fees are payable during the holiday or by the 1st week of the new term and fees are payable directly in the school's account in a designated bank whose teller will be made available to the parents. 

The relevant copy of the teller is to be submitted to the school as proof of payment. Children whose fees have not been paid as stipulated by the first week of resumption will be barred from attending classes and asked to stay home. 

It should be noted that while management is always mindful of keeping fees at affordable levels, parents should please note that fees are subject to review whenever this option is considered unavoidable
