The Department of Education requires all parents to provide the Chinese School with a certificate of your child’s attendance in a Day school full time. (see attached form)  You are kindly requested to forward the signed Certificate to your child’s teacher before the end of March of each school year. Parents who fail to provide the certificate of your child’s attendance in Day School to the Chinese school, will incur an increase in tuition fee of 100% (e.g. if the school fee is $80, an additional penalty of $80 is payable totalling $160). Thanks for your understanding.

Warm Regards,

没有教育部资金的援助,塔州中文学校是不能为学生提供低廉的学费。可是教育部要求家长须向学校提供一张有关您孩子在日校的学习证明(请看附件)。请您务必于三月底(30/3/2019)将信交给您孩子班的老师。如果没有这份证明信件,很遗憾您孩子的学费将为是原价的双倍(学费$80,双倍就是$160)。谢谢家长朋友们理解。
