At Chairo, our vision is to work in partnership with families. All Chairo campuses are operated by a company whose Directors are predominantly current Chairo parents. They understand the needs of parents for affordable education and the increasing costs of providing it, and therefore set fees accordingly.
In Australia, we are grateful for the support of both State and Federal government funding of independent schools like Chairo. This funding significantly reduces the school fees charged to our families.
Chairo’s fee structure is designed to give realistic access to a distinctive Christian education to families in a broad income range. To further assist, generous discounts apply where two or more children attend from one family. Note: a proportion of Prep to Year 12 fees collected (and other non-government funds raised by the school) may be used to support the operation of our kindergartens.
Chairo is committed to a policy where the cost of all core curriculum camps and excursions are included in the fee structure. Importantly, the majority of student stationery needs and even some text books are also included in the fees. This means any additional expenses through the year are kept to a minimum.
The school maintains a General Bursary Fund and offers assistance in the provision of Christian schooling to families with an identifiable financial need. More information and application forms are available from the Finance Department.
