Confirmation of School Place and Advance Fees for the 2018-19 Academic Year – Abacus

To : Parents of ESF Abacus International Kindergarten

Dear Parents

Confirmation of school place and advance fees for the 2018-19 academic year

ESF Abacus International Kindergarten

 

As we approach the end of the school year, we are writing to let you know the procedure to confirm your child’s place for 2018-19.  If you will be withdrawing your child and have notified the school in writing, please ignore this letter.

Every year, parents need to reserve a school place for their child for the following year through making an advance payment of September’s fees as a surety.

Advance Payment

The advance fees for K2 students in the next academic year (2018-19) are HK$7,600 or HK$8,850 for children in the bilingual class.  These advance fees will be used to offset tuition fees for September 2018. If there is a revision of fees in the next academic year, the difference will be payable in September 2018.

Please note that your child’s school place will not be confirmed if we do not receive your advance fees before the payment due date or if there are any outstanding tuition fees on account at the beginning of the next academic year.

Settlement

The advance payment will be debited from your designated bank account on 1 August 2018.  Please ensure that there are sufficient funds in the account after which there is no further action required.

If you have not set up the direct debit authorisation yet, please complete the Direct Debit Authorisation Form and send it back to ESF Centre, G.P.O. Box 11284, Hong Kong by 1 June 2018 as it may take up to 6 weeks for the bank to process the direct debit instruction.

If your monthly tuition fees are being settled by your employer directly, please make the payment by cheque on or before 13 July 2018:

  1. Click here to download and fill in the cheque payment slip;
  2. Send it together with a crossed cheque made payable to “ESF Educational Services Ltd” to “G.P.O. Box 11284, Hong Kong” on or before 13 July 2018. Post-dated cheques are not accepted.

Student Withdrawals

If you are withdrawing your child at the end of this academic year, please complete the student withdrawal notice and return it to the school office via email at kinder@abacus.edu.hk by 15 June 2018. Otherwise, we will assume that your child is returning after summer and parents are liable to the tuition fees for September 2018 even if the student does not  return to school. The student withdrawal notice can be downloaded here or can be obtained from the school office via email at kinder@abacus.edu.hk

Should you have any queries regarding the above, please contact our Billing Team at billing@esfcentre.edu.hk

We would like to thank you for your cooperation on this matter, and we wish your child every success in 2018-19.

Yours sincerely

Vivian Cheung

Chief Financial Officer
