We have informed parents of how we intend to re-structure our fees for children returning to schools and resuming participation. Below is the sample e-mail which was sent out in April - please note that the discounts may vary if there was already a discount in place at the beginning of 2020.
How our Fee Structure Works
Whether you are paying your lessons monthly, or per term, you are paying off an annual fee charged for lessons. The annual fee is divided by 10 if you pay monthly from Feb to Nov, by 4 if you are paying over four terms, and by 3 for ISASA three term schools.
We run on a custom computerised accounting system which has some limitations. We cannot discount specific terms or months, we can only pass a discount on our annual fee, which will then re-calculate the fees you are paying per month or term over the full year. In other words when we pass a discount on our annual fee you will benefit by having the 1st term fee also reduced, so your payment for the first term, after recalculation will result in a credit going towards the 2nd term, and the same principal applies to monthly statements.
Our Fee Re-structuring Plan:
May – 20%
June – 30%
July – 40%
August – 50%
September – 60%
October – 70%
Our health, the health of every child, parent and school staff member is of the highest priority – as and when we resume classes at schools we will adhere to all safety and hygiene regulations and laws as stipulated by the Government, Department of Education and Schools.
