Fee Remission Scheme

FEE REMISSION SCHEME UNDER THE DIRECT SUBSIDY SCHEME AND BURSARY SCHEME

It is our strong belief that no student should be denied admission to St. Paul’s College Primary School due to financial difficulties.  There will be a generous fee remission scheme provided by the School to assist families requiring financial help. 

(A) SCHOOL FEES

The annual school fee for St. Paul’s College Primary School 2017-2018 is $30,000.  

(B) BASIC CRITERIA FOR FEE REMISSION 

Four categories of Fee Remission are available: 100%, 75%, 50% and 25% depending on the Reckoner.

For those eligible families having more than one child attending the Primary Section/Secondary Section of St. Paul’s College, the percentage of fee remission for the additional child (or children) set out above would be increased by 25% (limiting to a maximum of 100%).

If the value of the family’s net assets (excluding the asset value of self-owned or co-owned property for dwelling) exceeds $400,000, 2% of the excess amount will be added to the applicant’s total average monthly adjusted family income.

Applicants receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) will be granted full school fee remission.

Applicants receiving financial assistance provided by the Student Financial Assistant Agency (SFAA) can also apply for the Fee Remission.  School fee remission will be provided for applicants in the level of assistance not less than that calculated according to the assessment mechanism used by the SFAA.


(C) APPLICATION PROCEDURES 

Parents/guardians who wish to benefit from the Fee Remission Scheme must submit the completed application form together with copies of the required documents, not later than a date to be notified.  All information provided in the application form and the supporting documents submitted are subject to strict verification. (Please download the detailed scheme from our School website or collect it from the School Office. )

(D) CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATION 

The completed application form and supporting documents must be returned to the School Office on or before a date to be notified.


(E) The above rules and policies will be reviewed from time to time. 


(F) BURSARY SCHEME  

The Bursary Scheme aims to assist students receiving school fee remission by providing financial aid to defray the cost of learning or attending activities organised/approved by the School. The maximum subsidy for each student is HK$8,000 per academic year paid by two instalments. Students receiving the school fee remission may also apply for reimbursement of school bus fare twice a year. The actual amount of both subsidies depends on the level of school fee remission approved. The details are as follows:
