No school fees for Government schools in 2018

Parents and guardians will not be required to pay school fees at Government schools in 2018.
Some parents feared that due to the country's economic crisis, they would be expected to pay school fees for their children.
This exemption applies for all State schools from pre-primary, primary through to secondary schools.
In an interview with Nampa on Saturday, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture, Sanet Steenkamp made it clear that the grant from Government to subsidise schools did not stop.
She explained however, that the grant given to schools is not sufficient, especially in terms of maintenance and stationery.
