Government funding covers much of the basic costs to students for books and materials, but these funds do not cover all of the costs of providing the level of educational opportunity that Norwood International High School community desires. The Governing Council, which represents parents and the wider school community, annually sets the school fee (referred to by the Department for Education (DfE) as the ‘prescribed sum’) after careful and detailed consideration. In setting the school fee, the Governing Council makes every effort to ensure that the most comprehensive and equitable educational opportunities may be offered to all of our students. 

The Materials and Services Charge only covers such items as textbooks, duplicated course notes, supplementary study materials, library books, PE equipment, audio visual equipment and materials. The government only provides a basic allowance for materials and equipment used in Art, Music, Home Economics and Technical Studies, but additional costs may be incurred for special projects. 

In 2023 the Norwood International High School fees are $910. As with 2022 the State government announced another $100 off of all government school fees in 2023. Therefore you will only need to pay $810. If you still have credits from 2022 they will come off the total you have to pay also. For all students and as a result of our polling process the Materials and Services fees also legally recoverable. In order for the school to recover the ‘prescribed sum’, it must conduct a poll and gain the support of a majority of the school community who respond. The Governing Council supports quality educational opportunities for your child. By supporting the Governing Council and its identified Materials and Services Charge, you are assisting significantly in your child’s education. 

The Governing Council requires that the Materials and Services Charge be paid either as a single lump sum by 16 February 2023, or in three instalments. 

  • 1st Instalment: 16 February 2023

  • 2nd Instalment: 16 March 2023

  • 3rd Instalment: 16 May 2023 

MasterCard, Visa Card, Cheque and EFTPOS facilities are available. Payment can be made at Student Services, by QKR app, by telephone, via our NIHS Website B Point or by mail to
