Dear Parents and Guardians,

We trust and pray that you are in good health during this time of Covid-19. As the Prophet Isaiah reminds us in Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”.

This past Saturday, the Registered Management Committee (RMC) met to discuss a number of matters, including the impact of Covid-19 on the parent community. The RMC recognize that for many families, there has been a financial impact, given the decrease in economic activity in Hong Kong.

The RMC wishes to stand alongside the Christian Alliance International School community during this tough economic period and be a blessing to those in need.

Therefore, the RMC has decided to adopt the following relief measures:

  • Freeze tuition fees for 2020/21;
  • Extend application deadline for Fees Reduction Scheme up to 30 April

Freeze tuition fees for 2020/21: The tuition fees will be frozen at the same level as this year. RMC will no longer seek EdB permission to raise tuition fees. This will impact on school finances given we have a major building project going on, and our operating expenses for next year continue to increase as part of our ongoing commitment to strengthening our curriculum and teaching quality.  However, the heart of the RMC is to share the financial pain alongside the families it serves.

Fees Reduction Scheme: The school has been offering a ‘Fees Reduction’ scheme to assist families with significant financial need next year. While the deadline for applications has passed, the school will now accept late applications up to 30 April. Please contact the Finance office for application forms as needed.

2019/20 COVID-19 Financial Relief Grant: The RMC recognizes that it is not only next year that families will face financial burden, but also this school year. Therefore, it will put forward a proposal to the School Council that will provide financial assistance to families this year.  The RMC values the relationship with the School Council and its feedback on the proposal it has prepared for parents.  A decision should be made on this by 20th April (after Easter) if not before.

We continue to pray that the LORD will comfort those in need, whether that be emotionally, physically or financially.

The RMC stands with you during this time of difficulty.


Grace and Peace to you

Mr. Martin Lau
Chairman RMC

School Supervisor
