Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am appealing on behalf of the management and staff of Donna's school to please pay your outstanding school fees as soon as possible. Today is pay day and none of us got paid any salary because the school is out of money. Why? because so many parents have not paid their school fees. We understand some parents are facing financial difficulties due to COVID disruptions, but they could have made payment plans. However, many of the parents who have not paid are well paid businessmen, public servants and officials. Please think of the teachers who have worked hard all year to help your children succeed and are now faced with a very bleak two months, including Christmas, with no income. Some parents have school fees owing since 2016 - we will soon be legally prosecuting them we have no choice left. Heartfelt gratitude to those parents who have kept up with their payments or have tried their best. Please examine your conscience and decide where you stand. I wish you all a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year - one that many staff at Donna's may not be sharing. Alex Year 7 & 8 English teacher

Dear parents,

There is mounting confusion amongst parents over the lockdown period school fees from March up to re-opening of schools recently.

Some parents are using this as excuse to avoid paying their dues and the administration knows them specifically, however, to those faithful parents, here is a brief clarity for your personal examinations and comfort.

From Monday 07th March 2022 after lockdowns commenced over the weekend (Saturday 05th March 2022), ALL TEACHERS were still working on the clock full time & daily to ensure home-school-packages(HSP) were prepared, available & distributed to our students as instructed by the Ministry of Education(MOE) and we deeply sympathize with their families as they've put their lives on the line to get the ball rolling through these tough times. The school management also agrees to the inefficiency of the HSP's positive impact on our students therefore, teachers have also re-organized our school hours after day 1 of the re-opening of all schools so that we can capture all these lost hours of face-to-face lessons again in this term 2. This means all teachers have done reviews with their students of all the works distributed during lockdown period. That's why you may have noticed that students finishing off at the usual 1.30pm had been knocking-off at 2.45pm and similarly to the rest.

Therefore, term 2 of 2022 which will be ending next week Friday 24th June 2022 has to be paid in full prior to your child entering their classrooms.

For those who have made verbal arrangements, please report to the office to sign-off an arrangement contract as we have noticed that most parents have not kept their commitments as expected.

Kindly note that the severity of these issues must not be taken lightly and the administration will be handling it seriously to settle matters.

We thank you for your continued faithfulness and we look forward to meeting your needs where necessary.

You have a blessed night.

Administration
