According to the SA Schools Act, parents or guardians who enrol a learner in a public school is legally obligated to pay the prescribed school fees. School fees are determined annually by the elected Governing Body, after drawing up a budget for the following year. Please note some parents may, based upon the combined gross salary of both parents, qualify and apply for a partial or full exemption of school fees. Details of the criteria, the application procedure as well as the sliding scale, can be obtained from the school. Applications for a subsidy must be handed in before 31st of January of each year. The parent remains responsible for the payment of all school fees until the application is approved. An annual once-off levy per learner is payable on the day when the school year commences in January. This amount forms part of the annual school fees. All payments are to be made to Middelburg Hoërskool (MHS). Unless you choose the option of payment by way of monthly instalments, the full balance of the school fees payable on the last day of February. Should you choose the option of monthly instalments, the school fees is payable in a minimum of 10 equal monthly payments, payable from January. While a reasonable period is given for payment of school fees, the full amount will become due and payable if the parent falls behind with payments. This means that the full amount that was levied for the year, plus interest will be handed to the school’s legal advisors for collection. The school will not discriminate against any child on the grounds of the non-payment of fees by the parents, but parents should take notice of the following: If payments are not made in time, I agree to pay interest which will be levied within the framework of existing financial legislation. Should non-payment of school fees be handed over for collection to the school’s legal advisors, I accept liability for payment of legal fees on the scale as between attorney and client as well as collection commission. I also agree that if this should happen, an amount equal to the monthly payment may be collected from my employer. It is hereby specifically agreed that the school shall be entitled to, at its sole discretion, to allocate any payment made towards such debits or outstanding amounts as the school may determine. The responsible parent agrees that, if this should happen, an amount equal to the monthly payment may be collected from his employer.
