AISJ 2020-2021 Tuition Fees
2020 has been a challenging year globally, we are all faced with challenges that are beyond our control, however, we need to ensure that everyone comes together to overcome those challenges, every stakeholder must have a role.
Since March of last year many of the parents has faced financial difficulties; salaries were reduced significantly, in certain cases some parents received no income for 4+ months, some companies cancelled schooling allowance, other received no more incentives and the 15% vat has been introduced for Expats.
AISJ has not reduced the fees for last year from March-June, despite other international schools being able to do so by renegotiating their contracts and passing the savings back to the parents.
Our children education remains to be our top priority, thus why some of us are spending more than they can to ensure that the children are getting the best value. Unfortunately, we don't see that our children are getting the same value in home schooling to justify paying for the same fees. While we understand that most of the expenses for the school are fixed, we believe the school should renegotiate with the landlord, contracts and expenses to pass the savings back to the parents.
We all want the best for our children, and we all support AISJ as a community school, however the school needs to understand that many of the parents are no longer capable to justify the same tuitions fees, especially in these difficult times.
We appreciate the school’s board and management to look into this urgently
