General informations


Example of how to calculate the pension amount

Simulation : You are in rate 2, you wish to take all the meals and be accommodated in a twin room
if you arrive on Saturday afternoon and leave the following Friday.

The calculation will be as follows

  • 6 days of teaching (morning and afternoon) 6X30€ = 180€

that is 180 € to be paid to the congregation

  • the annual fee (if you have not already paid it): 33 €.

  • Accommodation in a room with 2 beds : 6X18€ = 108€.

  • full-board meals: from Saturday evening to Friday lunchtime included) 6X20€= 120€

that is  255 € to be paid to the association

So a total for the week of 441€.
