Bursaries

Bursaries

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.

Bursary Application

The school fees amount to R1320 per month.
A maximum bursary of R950 per month is awarded to selected applicants.
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 per month, the parent will be responsible for paying the balance of R370 per month to make up the total monthly fee of R1320.
The bursary is awarded for 12 (twelve) months only, where after the income eligibility of the parents will be reviewed to determine whether the bursary will be extended.
In order to qualify for the bursary, please submit (for both father and mother) the following items:

Application Form

ID

Pay slip

Bank statement

Police declaration (Affidavit)

  • If the child’s grandparents are paying, we still need to see what the income of the parents is. If one or both of the parents are unemployed, you must go to the police station and make a declaration that you are unemployed.
  • If one or both of the parents are unemployed you must go to the police station and make a declaration that you are unemployed.
  • You have to fill in the father of the child’s information even if you are not living together or if you are divorced.
  • If you do not know where the child’s father is or has no contact with him, you have to go to the police station and make a declaration that you don’t know where he is and that you do not receive any income or support from him.
  • If you are self-employed,  you have to go to the police station and make a declaration that you are self-employed and what you earn roughly per month. Please note that if you lie whilst making a declaration at the police station, it is a criminal offence and can be punished by the Law. If you fail to give me the information, your application will not be processed and you will have to pay the full school fee of R1320.
  • Any bursary holder whose attendance is not satisfactory could lose their bursary.
  • School fees must be paid in accordance with Akkerdoppies policies. Should school fees be outstanding for more than 3 (three) months without any prior arrangement made for settlement thereof, it will result in the learner losing his/her place.
  • Akkerdoppies Pre-Primary reserves the right to change any of the above mentioned points without an explanation to the bursary holder or parent.

Currently, 66% of the children attending Akkerdoppies Pre-Primary have qualified for a bursary.  Our aim is to increase this percentage to 70%.
