Additional Costs

These vary according to the individual programme by the student, so are not covered by the standard tuition fee.  They may include:

  • Non-programmable scientific calculator for Maths, Physics, etc ($90 approximately)
  • New Zealand Qualifications Entry (NCEA - if necessary, $400 approximately)
  • Trips out of school including Marine Studies trips, snow trips, camping and tramping, kayaking, high ropes and mountain biking trips. Current prices all available on application.
  • Whakatane High School offers a unique End of Year program for International Students, this program is subsidised by the school with some charges incurred by the students based on the interests of the students.

Subject fees where additional materials and equipment are supplied that have a take home component/project.  This is only for materials in excess of subject allocation.

These are approximate costs only and are subject to change should insurance or other costs increase. All prices are in NZD and include GST unless otherwise stated.

 

Contingency Fees

*The Contingency Fee is a convenient and cost saving method for natural parents to pay for additional items such as travel to sports competitions, attending the school ball, paying for a trip to see the All Blacks play in Auckland, course materials not covered in tuition fees etc. The school office does not accept credit cards. Paying the school in small amounts from overseas adds currency exchange fees to your bill. This is avoided with the contingency fee. The school will refund any unused credit at the end of the student's stay at WHS.
