Special Character Donation

As an integrated school, the Ministry of Education allows us to integrate our special character through all aspects of our school’s operation and curriculum. However, all aspects of this, including resources and professional development, are not funded by the Crown. We therefore ask parents for a tax-deductible donation of $215 per student ($54 per student per term or part thereof).

This donation is payable to Hamilton Christian School Incorporated
