2016 School Tuition Schedule

Dear parent
I write to provide notification of 2016 annual tuition fees. Deciding the tuition for the upcoming year
is a complex process and the School takes considerable time modelling based upon all the
information available. The driving force is the importance to remain an affordable fee school
accessible to as many families who wish an education at Hume. Of equal importance is the need
to have the necessary funds to provide high quality schooling with all the benefits we offer. We are
fortunate to receive funding through government grants and this goes a long way to assisting in
keeping fee increases to a minimum. Nonetheless, we are faced with normal increases to running
cost that all schools experience.
I am pleased to say that due largely to sound financial management, the increase is on average
less than 3.25%. I am also pleased to announce that next year a new sibling discount schedule will
be introduced. This means that the third and subsequent child will receive a greater discount from
previous years. I know this will assist a large number of families and I am sure will be most welcome.

You will notice this year there has been a change to the billing process. Enclosed with this letter is
your Notification of 2016 Annual Fees which details your total tuition for enrolled children. Soon, you
will receive your Term 1 invoice/statement for 2016, and next year separate invoices for Terms 2, 3
and 4.
More information regarding the tuition schedule for 2016 is outlined overleaf and within the
enclosed brochure. I draw your attention to the section regarding notice of withdrawal. It is very
important you provide the minimum of one terms notice if you are departing the School, otherwise
you will incur a terms fees in-lieu. If you intend to not return in 2016, you must notify us by the end of
the day on Monday, 5 October.
Alternatively, if you, or you know of others who intend to join Hume and have not had a position
confirmed, please do this now. We have waiting lists and unfortunately a number of families have
been left very disappointed as a place has not been available for siblings.
Yours sincerely
