Fee Schedule and Payment Information

Chengelo is a non-profit making organisation. The term fees go towards the running costs of the school. Term fees are invoiced in Kwacha and are sent out to parents at the end of the previous term and must be paid in full by the first day of term. Separate Kwacha invoices will be issued for incidentals including uniform, medical, breakages, interest, arrears.
