What is the Leibler Yavneh College Fee Transformation Program?

Leibler Yavneh College recognises that the cost of Jewish education has become an increasing burden on parents who simply want the best for their children, which has caused hardship for many within our school community and affected both full-fee paying families and those on Fee Relief.

As a leading Jewish day school, we pride ourselves on our belief that all Jewish children deserve access to a high-quality Jewish education, and we acknowledge the impact of the cost of education on our entire school community.

That is why we have reviewed our current fee structure as part of our ongoing commitment to finding long-term and sustainable solutions to alleviate the fee burden on parents.

The program allows parents to deposit 20% of their school fees up front. Parents will then have the option to either have the deposit wholly or partially refunded, or for the deposit to be applied as a tax-deductible charitable donation, with donations to be acknowledged on an honour board within the school grounds.

This Fee Transformation Program will help to reduce the fee burden on existing parents and all tax-deductible charitable donations will enable all Jewish children in the LYC community and beyond to access the highest quality education.

The first phase of the program begins in 2021 and will be rolled out to families of students in years 7-12, with a view to extending the program to all students and families in 2022.

Regardless of the option chosen, this program will result in a substantial saving on school fees for all parents of students in Years 7-12.
