After School Supervision

After school supervision is automatic from 3:30 pm onwards, for students in junior kindergarten to grade seven, who are not picked up by their parents/guardians. Time is set aside for structured activities, such as homework, play, and/or provision of a snack. This supervision is free from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm. However, a fee will be applied automatically for each half-hour between 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Instead of being charged per half-hour between 4:00 to 6:00pm, you are welcome to sign up for a fixed monthly payment; a sign-up form is required for each academic year. From 6:00 pm onward, a higher fee will be applied automatically.

After School Programs

After School Programs are also offered and prices vary; please refer to program promotional materials throughout the year.


Homestay can be arranged by Hawthorn for our international students at $1,000 per month per student.


Family Discount

For families paying domestic fees, 5% discount to families with 2 children and 10% discount to families with 3 or more children on the school fee. If Tuition Assistance is granted, the discount will form part of the awarded amount.


At Hawthorn School, one of the criteria for a student’s acceptance is the readiness of parents to assist in the school’s development through their financial support of fundraising initiatives.

Financial support for the Hawthorn School is essential to cover operating costs and to provide for the future growth of the school. All parents are expected to contribute to an annual donation in keeping with their means.

Voluntary gifts are also welcome. Charitable tax receipts are issued for all eligible donations for the taxation year that it is donated.

An option for supporting the school includes volunteering and promoting the school.
