The school offers a wide variety of extra-mural activities. Learners are expected to take part in at least one activity per term. A learner who has joined an extra-mural activity is obliged to attend the practices as detailed or to provide the staff member with a valid excuse in good time. Once committed, he/she is also obliged to see the season/term through. PE and computers are compulsory and form part of the curriculum of our school from grade RR to grade seven respectively.
All dates and times will be advised at the beginning of the term. Private Coaches or tutors at private rates over and above school fees present the following activities:
Soccer Little Lab Coats
All extra-murals depend on the availability of coaches and sufficient interest from the children.
All payments for extra-mural activities must be paid directly to the appropriate coach and NOT into the school’s account.
We also offer Netball, athletics, choir, soccer, and cross country running. These activities are practised at the Korfbal courts in Klip Street, or at Elturion’s own property depending on the specific need of the particular sport.
YOUR FINANCIAL COMMITMENT
It is our God-given right to choose where and how our children will be educated. Along with that right, we must also assume the responsibility of being a vital part in that process. Our program can only reach its full potential in your child’s life if we have your agreement and full support on these fundamental issues.
Due to Elturion Independent Christian School being a fully private school and since our funding is completely dependant upon school fees, we would ask that you consider a monthly stop order to cover your child’s fees. This will go a long way to ensuring the effective day-to-day running of the school. Because we only accept between 10 and 16 children per educator, you can appreciate that funding is tight.
Your financial commitment to the school is for school fees payable over 11 months. School fees cover your child’s tuition, music creativity, IT training and sporting activities as previously mentioned. Please be advised that school fees have to reflect in the school bank account by the 7th of each month. Any outstanding fees or late fees will be subject to a late penalty fee of R50 per day. Every effort must be made to avoid this action from being enforced. Should it become necessary for the school’s account department to contact you telephonically for late payment of school fees an additional cost of R5,00 per call will be levied to your account. Most importantly, if the school fees are not reflected in the school’s account by the 7th, your child will not be permitted access to the school as from the 8th of each month.
