Personalised Learning Costs  

Annual School Fees cover our Essential and Exploring 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.

School Camp Fees

School Camps offer opportunities for student growth in a unique way and are part of The Silkwood Way Exploring Program. For this reason, camps are not optional unless a student has a medical reason. Should you be concerned about your child’s attendance at camp, meet with your Advisor to discuss before the start of the school year. Camp fees are adjusted yearly to reflect changes to costs from providers. They are published separately to school fees each year. Due to COVID challenges in 2021, the school camp fees for the 2022 school year will be issued and invoiced in January. See Terms of Payment below for details about refunds for school camps.

*School Camp fees are reviewed before the end of every year and will adjust to account for provider pricing & availability.
