Exemption from school fees: Parents who qualify for partial, full or conditional school fee exemption (gr 1-7), as determined by the South African Schools Act 84 of 1996, may request forms from the office, to be completed at the beginning of each school year.
Collecting school fees: According to Section 40 of the South African Schools Act 84 of 1996, both parents are legally obliged to pay school fees. It is therefore a statutory issue and the school may take legal action to collect overdue school fees.
School fees at Pre-primary: The Schools Act is currently only applicable to school-going learners. In other words, school fee exemption for gr. RR and gr. R learners is not possible. Learners whose school fees have not been paid can forfeit their place in the pre-primary class.
