The Independent School Bursary (ISB), which currently covers only school fees, will be expanded to cover miscellaneous fees, which include cost of teaching and printing materials for students in the schools.
Independent schools charge fees ranging from S$250 to S$450 a month, excluding miscellaneous fees which range from S$35 to S$100 a month. A check with all eight independent schools found that none are planning to raise fees for Singaporeans, although fees are going up for permanent residents and international students at some schools.
The independent schools are:
Anglo-Chinese School (Independent),
Hwa Chong Institution,
Methodist Girls’ School,
Nanyang Girls’ High School,
NUS High School,
Raffles Girls School,
School of the Arts,
School of Science & Technology,
Singapore Chinese Girls’ School,
Singapore Sports School
St Joseph’s Institution
