School fees for the autumn term

Sorry. I'll get all the updating out of my system and then you can have another quiet spell!

Just to let you know that we have again paid school fees at Mpasa Secondary Day School, this term for 72 children. There has been a significant rise in fees this term. The school hopes to build an assembly room, where school gatherings can be held and where children coming in for the second "sitting" (they take half the school rota in the morning, the other half in the afternoon) can wait and study until classes begin. Raising fees is the only way to achieve it. So our 72 children this term are costing around £415, just under £6 per child. It's still shocking to think that families cannot afford to pay it.
