School fees?

As a public school, Westmount Park School does not charge any tuition fees to students and welcomes all children for free. Unfortunately, they are various additional fees for consumables and supervision outside of teaching hours not covered by our budget. These fees allow Westmount Park to broaden its offerings to students, and give additional flexibility to working parents.

Please be advised that additional fees may be charged for field trips and other activities during class time. You will receive notices from the school prior to these activities taking place.

Unpaid or outstanding fees may result in your child being excluded from extra-curricular activities, so we ask that you please pay all fees as quickly as possible. Please send your fee payment with your child by cheque (to the order of Westmount Park School) or in cash by the deadline on your fee notice.
