The Board of Trustees, with support from the provincial government, has taken significant steps to eliminate or reduce school fees. While the move will ensure families do not pay fees for regular instructional materials and resources, it is important to note that there will still be some fees charged to students. These include fees for optional activities and purchases such as field trips, swim programs, yearbooks, school wear, extra-curricular activities, etc.
PBS School Fees 2018-2019 include:
