From 2023, the CTL will cover the provision of many more curriculum-related materials, incursions, minor excursions, and activities which were previously charged separately to parents. This will provide more certainty to parents and reduce the need to make extra payments. The CTL excludes camps (eg; year camps) and major excursions and some elective/music fees.

Annual Family Capital Levy* $1,200 per annum per Tangara/Redfield family

Enrolment Application Fee* $200 per family

Enrolment Acceptance Fee* $1,000 (first child), $500 (each additional child)

*Having this levy and sibling concessions for fees apply to one family across two schools (Tangara School and Redfield College) is unique to the schools of the Pared Foundation.
