As a state integrated school, Wā Ora is able to offer an authentic Montessori education to our students more affordably than anywhere else in the world. The fees, costs and donations are outlined below. All fees include GST.
A non-refundable application fee is payable when applying to enrol in the preschool. This enables your child to be placed on the waiting list. The application fee is $85 for your first child and $25 for siblings. This fee does not guarantee placement. There is no enrolment fee for the primary and high school.
A Bond of $500 per family is payable upon confirmation of a place in the preschool. This is refunded when the last child in the family leaves Wā Ora , providing this is at the completion of Year 7 or later.
