Libreville - School Report Question and Answers

Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?

Formal and sports uniforms must be purchased; they are expensive (a uniform costs about 30-40 dollars a piece for a boy for primary). After school lessons are offered and also cost extra (fencing, dance, tennis, instruments, etc). This year students are required to have a device to take to school from first grade on--in primary school this can be a laptop or tablet. I am unsure if this requirement will continue after the risk of device sharing during Covid dissipates. Students use online library programs like EPIC, so I would count on it continuing. - Jan 2022
