School Fees

2021 Tuition Fees

MECS fees cover all camps and excursions, and there are no additional levies.

Additional costs apply for sports tops, stationery, textbooks for secondary students and optional items such as private instrumental music lessons, optional VET courses in the Senior School and the bus service.

The school Board decided not to increase our School Fees in 2021 due to the pandemic and the effect on our community, fees remain at the 2020 rate.
