School Fees

A willingness on the part of the responsible parent or guardian to pay school fees is a necessary condition of the enrolment and ongoing attendance of a child at Coffs Harbour Christian Community School (CHCCS).

Funding to meet the operational expenses of the school is derived from fees charged to parents as well as State and Commonwealth Government funding.

Parental school fees comprise of the following.

Basic Tuition Fees

These primarily contribute toward all costs associated with the provision of staff, maintenance, insurances, building and business costs.  Basic Tuition fees are billed on an annual basis at the commencement of the year. A Family Fee Rebate may be applied for when a family’s combined tuition fees are above the set Family Fee.
