As the school year comes to an end, many parents are not in the financial position to be able to pay for their children's school fees. Which has made many parents wonder if their children's school reports would be withheld if payments are not made in full.

The current pandemic has left many South Africans unemployed and as the school year comes to an end, many parents are not in the financial position to be able to pay for their children's school fees.

Which has made many parents wonder if their children's school reports would be withheld if payments are not made in full by the end of the academic year.

An interview was done between Sue Larkan, from the Tabansi organisation, and John Perlman, from the radio station 702, around this topic of schools withholding school reports.

According to Larkan, it is illegal for all South African schools, both private and public schools, to withhold a report, Grade 12 certificate or transfer card for any reason.

 

In some cases, parents took the school to court for such behaviour, however it does not have to come to that. 

Instead, the parents or legal guardians and the school could find alternative forms of payment, such as paying small portions towards the school fees each month.
