Repton School Dubai Fee reduction request
The Management of Repton School Dubai
FEE REDUCTION ON THIRD SEMESTER E-LEARNING
Dear Sir / Madam,
According to the current situation, we, parents of Repton School Dubai , appreciate the Institutions’ continuous support and we support the decision of the school’s closure for the safety of its students.However, we are finding the full fee payment for the Third Term’s ‘Distance Learning Program’ unjustified.
It is important to address that the online learning platform is not a complete alternate, but rather a supplement to the Term Education. Parents have to put in more than 8 hours per day, accompany our children to complete the daily assigned lessons, provide resources, stationary, technology, not to mention the added mental strain and pressure of working from home simultaneously. For example,Some parents need to work at home . It is very difficult to manage the children's online learning courses and their work . And it is more difficult for family having more children who are in different levels to balance. In addition, for those parents who are not eligible enough, it is even more difficult for them to complete this mission, they might need to pay extra to hire a tutor.
Moreover, Keeping the current situation in mind, the government has clearly created policies in place which gives the employers a choice to reduce the salaries.In addition to this, the children are not attending school for the entire semester, neither using the premises, utilities, facilities nor all extra circular activities which are now closed for the entire semester thus reducing the school’s costs.
Over the course of last few weeks, we have seen businesses and companies suffer, families across the city taking the brunt of this situation- most employees are being laid off, forced to take unpaid leave or are facing up to 30% pay cuts. Most Businesses are struggling and commercial activity has now come to a complete halt. It is a seriously difficult period for all of us. Considering these prevailing conditions, many schools in Dubai are supporting the parents and have announced reductions in fees.
As prominent education providers in the UAE, we expect Repton to lead the way by example and therefore, we collectively appeal to Repton Education for a minimum 30% Fees Reduction for the Third Term 'E-Learning Program'.We hope Repton school dubai will play its part. Please help us to tide over the difficulties .
