School Camp Fees

Camp fees are adjusted yearly to reflect changes to costs from providers. For this reason, they are kept seperate to the Anuual School fees. School Camp fees are published separately in November every year and then included as part of the annual school fee invoice in January. Our Camp Program is not an add-on to the Silkwood learning program, it plays an integral part in our Discovery Learning Program. We offer no refund for non-participation in camps, except in cases where a family has applied for a medical exemption and it has been approved.

Personalised Learning Costs  

Annual School Fees cover our Core and Essential Learning Programs, which includes all courses required for attainment of QCE in Year 11-12 and the delivery of the Australian Curriculum requirements. Costs that arise in the development of a student’s personal project or personalised learning pathway that sit outside these programs are a family’s responsibility. 

These costs may include: 

  • a course or other activity provided by an external supplier;
  • an external exam or assessment that incurs additional costs;
  • specialised materials or resources;
  • transport to and from a mentor, training or learning opportunity.

The school does not make financial decisions arising from personal projects on behalf of families. The decisions and payment arrangements for these costs are left with the family.
