4. REGULATIONS APPLYING TO SCHOOL FEES

In terms of Section 40 of the South African Schools’ Act (SASA), biological parents / legal guardians have a legal obligation to pay school fees. This is a statutory debt and must be met by biological parents / legal guardians. The Act does not distinguish between a married, divorced or single parent. A learner only has a single parent when the other parent is deceased, not when there has been a divorce or never a marriage at all. Divorced parents remain the learner’s parents, irrespective of their altered marital status. Graeme College Fee Structure

The School adopts and implements the exemptions regulated as gazette in October 2006. Unless a learner has only one parent, both biological parents’ / legal guardian’s income must be taken into account when an application for exemption is considered.

Both biological parents / legal guardians are responsible for their child’s education, and, in terms of SASA, a school may demand payment of the school fees from both OR any one of a learner’s biological parents / legal guardians.

School fees are a statutory obligation, which a learner’s biological parents / legal guardians must pay and the parents / legal guardians (married, unmarried or divorced) are jointly and severally liable.

One biological parent / legal guardian may enrol the learner at Graeme College, and, as per the admission form, we will use that address, as “domicillium citandi et executandi”. Graeme College will send letters or accounts addressed to both biological parents / legal guardians to that address. It is that parent’s responsibility to pass any and all information on to their ex-husband/wife/partner / other parent or legal guardian.

FEES AND OTHER CHARGES

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Graeme College is a fee-paying school. The school fees biological parents / legal guardians pay to cover the school programme. The school programme includes the academic programme determined by the School Governing Body from subjects promulgated by the Department of Education and the extra-curricular programme determined by the School Governing Body. Where offerings are on a voluntary basis, an additional cost is incurred. Your school fees do not cover individual and small group music lessons, sports tours and stationery requirements (excluding Gr 00 – 3). Fees will be raised in full at the beginning of each year.

MUSIC FEES: Fees for individual and group music lessons are payable in advance. Should school fees be in arrears, learners will not be permitted to continue with individual or group lessons until the school fees and music fees have been paid. Should you receive a fee exemption, your son will not be eligible to receive group or individual music lessons.

PRESCHOOL AND AFTERCARE: No fee exemption is available on Grade 00, R and Aftercare fees. Non-payment will result in the child not being allowed to make use of this service.

OUTINGS: Money received by the school will first be allocated to the paying of school fees before being used to pay for tours and outings.

FEE EXEMPTIONS: Graeme College Fee Exemption documents are available from the Finance Manager. Please apply in writing, before the end of January each year, to the Finance Manager if you require these forms. Fee Exemption applications must be submitted annually. The forms must be completed and returned to the Finance Manager within one month of issue.

BOARDING FEES:

No fee exemption is available for boarding fees;

If biological parents / legal guardians do not honour their agreement for payments, they will be reminded that non-payment will result in the border being returned home, at the expense of the parent/guardian. The border will be deemed to be in the care of the parent/guardians when he boards the bus home;

TEXT BOOKS: All books not returned at the end of each academic year will be charged to the learner’s account at R150 per book, or more if the book costs more to replace.

REGIONAL/PROVINCIAL REPRESENTATION: In most cases, the School is responsible for transport and organisation for regional/provincial trials, but once the learner is selected as part of a regional/provincial team the responsibility of transportation is transferred to the biological parents / legal guardians.
