The AGM and Budget 2019 meeting was held on 6 November 2019. The final decision taken was as follows:
- The voluntary fees for returning learners is R100 for the 2020 year. This may be paid in installments.
- First time admissions will be R150 for the year.
- Transports costs for extra curricular activities (sports & excursions) will be collected as and when the need arises.
- The school will embark on other fundraising activities as well – Civvies day, cake sales, tuck shop rental, fun day, photographs – to supplement the income.
An appeal is made to all parents to contribute to the voluntary fees to ensure that we are able to continue to provide some temporary employment as required.
