Ages and Year Levels

admission-ageAt Green Shoots we will generally place students in the year level that corresponds with their age on August 31st of the year of entry. This is because, for the majority of children, an age-appropriate class offers both educational and social benefits beyond those that may be gained from access to an alternative classroom setting. Many of our classes are multi-level, offering ample opportunity for differentiated teaching within an age-appropriate setting.

Under exceptional circumstances we will consider placement in either a higher or lower year level if we believe that by doing so we can enhance a student’s learning experience with us.

The age tables given here outline which year level your child will enter in the 2016-17, 2017-18, and 2018-19 school years.

admission feeAt Green Shoots we try to keep our fee structure as simple as possible so that you, our parents, can clearly see the total cost of educating your child with us.

Unless otherwise stated on the Fee Schedule, all costs associated with your child’s education (such as meals, books, ICT use, etc) are included in the tuition fee. Fees are charged separately only where they may not apply to all students (such as exam registration fees, bus fees, clothing, etc). A one-off Enrolment Fee is charged upon joining the school to cover the costs associated with enrolling your child with us. We do not charge an application fee.

An annual Development Fee, invoiced at the beginning of each academic year, helps us build our school to meet your child’s future educational needs. This money may be spent on a variety of different things including, but not limited to: curriculum development and teaching resources; accreditation and international school group membership fees, and campus development.

Fees, and our associated fee policy, for the current school year are given below. Fees for the upcoming school year are released in April of the preceding year.
