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.

Technology Access and Maintenance Fee - $31.50
Equitable access to technology for all students supports the cultivation of social responsibility and the development of critical thinking skills through avenues that are relevant, responsive and meaningful. The technology integration fee levied on behalf of NGPS ensures that students have access to devices that can be used both at school and at home; to software that is connected to and complements curriculum; and to processes that both reinforce and encourage the demonstration of learner competencies.
