Tuition fees will be discounted according to the following schedule: 55% for the first child, 75% for the second and subsequent children. Costs of excursions, texts and materials will remain payable.

- The School and staff member are required to make a monthly contribution to a scheme registered under the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Ordinance for the term of the contract at the statutory contribution rate (i.e. 5% of the Employee’s monthly relevant income or $1,250, whichever is the less) if they are not members of a retirement scheme outside of Hong Kong. Staff may choose to contribute voluntarily funds in addition to the mandatory contributions.
You need to hold a valid employment visa to allow you to work in Hong Kong. Your spouse and children may remain in Hong Kong on a dependent visa, which is applied for based on your employment visa or be a holder of a dependent spouse visa. Please note that a dependent visa can only be obtained upon presentation of an original marriage certificate for your spouse and birth certificates for your children.
Hong Kong income tax is not deducted at source and is payable once a year. The standard rate of tax is approximately 15%. Allowances for single parents, married couples and the number of dependent children reduce taxable salary.
