Confirmation of School Place and Advance Fees for 2023/24 - ESF Abacus International Kindergarten
As we approach the end of the school year, we are writing to let you know the procedure to confirm your child’s place for 2023/24. If you will be withdrawing your child and have submitted the Withdrawal Notice to your school, please ignore this letter.
Every year, parents need to reserve a school place for their child for the following year by making an advance payment of September’s fees as a surety.
The advance fees for K2 students in the next academic year 2023/24 are HK$8,930 or HK$10,380 for children in the bilingual class. These advance fees will be used to offset the tuition fees for September 2023. If there is a revision of fees in the next academic year, the difference will be payable in September 2023.
Please note that your child’s school place will not be confirmed if we do not receive your advance fees before the payment due date or if there are any outstanding tuition fees on the account without prior arrangement at the beginning of the next academic year.
The advance payment will be debited from your designated bank account on 1 August 2023. Please ensure that there are sufficient funds in the account.
If you have not set up the direct debit authorisation yet, please complete the Direct Debit Authorisation Form and send it back to ESF Centre, G.P.O. Box 11284, Hong Kong by 1 June 2023 as it may take up to six weeks for the bank to process the direct debit.
If your monthly tuition fees are being settled by your employer directly, please make the payment by cheque on or before 14 July 2023:

Send the cheque payment slip together with a crossed cheque made payable to “The ESF Educational Services Ltd” to “G.P.O. Box 11284, Hong Kong” on or before 14 July 2023. Post-dated cheques are not accepted.
If you are withdrawing your child at the end of this academic year, please submit the student withdrawal notice via the ESF App by 1 June 2023. Otherwise, we will assume that your child is returning after summer and parents are liable for the tuition fees for September 2023 even if the student does not return to school.
Should you have any queries regarding the above, please contact our Billing Team at email@example.com
We would like to thank you for your cooperation on this matter, and we wish your child every success in 2023/24.
