To make Akkerdoppies affordable to all, we initiated a Bursary fund. Parents can apply for a bursary and the bursary is paid out of the bursary fund.
Currently, 66% of the children attending Akkerdoppies Pre-Primary have qualified for a bursary. Our aim is to increase this percentage to 70%.
The school fees amount to R1,300.00 per month.
A maximum bursary of R950.00 per month is awarded to selected applicants.
Who can apply for a bursary?
Bursaries are awarded after evaluating the following:
- The net income (before deductions) of both parents; and
- The number of children a parent has attending school.
- If the value of the bursary amounts to R950.00 per month, the parent will be responsible for paying the balance of R350.00 per month to make up the total monthly fee of R1300.00.
- The bursary is awarded for 12 (twelve) months only, whereafter the income eligibility of the parents will be reviewed to determine whether the bursary will be extended.
- If an applicant fails to provide any of the information, the application will not be processed, and the full school fee of R1,300.00 will apply.
- Forms to be handed out on request after application.
* Any bursary holder whose attendance is not satisfactory could lose their bursary.
* Akkerdoppies Pre-Primary reserves the right to change any of the above-mentioned points without an explanation to the bursary holder or parent.
