Franciscan College

The full-time Franciscan Matric Project is accredited with Umulazi.  


The Franciscan Matric Project was started in 1986 by the late Fr. Stan Brennan, a Franciscan Friar, in response to requests from parents on the East Rand.  The school is situated at St Anthony’s Education Centre in Reiger Park, Boksburg.  The school operates under the auspices of the Catholic Diocese of Johannesburg and is guided by the Christian Ethos of the Centre.

The school offers full-time tuition to Grade 10, Grade 11 and Grade 12 learners and is registered with the Gauteng Department of Education as an Independent school.

1. FEES before the 3rd of every month

We rely on school fees to cover the costs involved in running the school and paying staff salaries.  We are a non-profit organization.  All money paid by parents is used for the benefit of the students.  This R12 300 includes tuition fees and an initial set of stationery and the loan of text books which must be returned in November. The fees are payable as follows:   

GRADE 10, GRADE 11 and GRADE 12 FEES – R12 300

R3 500 – this is a non-refundable registration fee paid on registration.

R1 100 at the end of February 2017

Basic set of stationery included in school fees.

Fees must be paid before the 3rd of each month.

NB:  School Fees may be paid up (settled) at any time before September 2017              

In order to eliminate the danger of having cash on the school premises, fees have to be deposited directly into the school account at any Standard Bank.  You will require a M65 bank deposit slip which is available only at the school.  Your child will be issued with a deposit slip before the end of each month for monthly payments.

Please bear in mind that transport to and from St. Anthony’s is expensive.  Please do not register if you cannot afford the fees and the transport costs.

Non-payment of fees will result in the student being suspended from school.


2.1 Registration begins on 4th January 2017.  The original year end school report is required for Grade 10 and Grade 11.    The original statement of symbols is required for those registering for Grade 12. An original ID or birth certificate for the student and the parents ID is also required. You will be required to make a photo copy of the documents to leave at the school.

2.2 Once you have registered and provided the necessary documents the deposit of R3 500 must be deposited into   Standard Bank using the schools deposit slip.

The bank will give you two copies of the deposit slip.  You must return to the school with the two deposit slips to complete your registration.  It is absolutely essential that you return to the school with the two deposit slips, otherwise we will not be able to identify whose money has been deposited.  If you do not bring the deposit slips we cannot complete your registration and we have to assume that you have not paid.  

You will also be required to bring R100 to pay for photographs and an I.D. tag.

2.3 Immigrant learners must have the necessary documents e.g. Study Permit in order to register.


A condition of registration is that both the parents and the student sign a copy of the School Rules and the Code of Conduct.  Compliance to school Rules and Code of Conduct is compulsory and no transgressions will be tolerated.


This project caters for FULL-TIME students.  No student will be allowed to register or write the November internal or external exams unless he/she has a suitable record of attendance and has completed all SBA tasks.  From previous experience we have found that a learner with a poor attendance record also makes very poor academic progress.

When a learner is absent from school he/she must produce a doctor’s note on the day he/she returns to school to explain the absence.


Tests are set regularly. You can expect to write approximately one test per month in each subject. Internal exams are written by Grades 10 and 11 in June and November.   Grade 12 learners write internal exams in June and external Prelim exams in September and final exams in November.  Grade 12 will write external Gauteng Department of Education exams in November.


These results are used by Grade 11 and Grade 12 learners for application to Higher Education institutions, learners should therefore take these exams very seriously.



Life Orientation is a compulsory subject. Life Orientation involves a holistic approach to the study of self in relation to others and society.  Life Orientation is concerned with all aspects of the growth and development of a student including social, intellectual, spiritual, mental and physical growth.

Life Orientation aims to produce learners who are prepared for the challenges and responsibilities of life and able to seize life’s opportunities.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION TASKS (PET) forms an important component of Life Orientation assessment so it is compulsory for ALL learners to participate in the PET lessons.




    All students in all grades study either Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy.  It is compulsory for all learners to have

    a CASIO FX82ES, CASIO FX82ES+ or CASIO FX82ZA+ Calculator and a set of mathematical instruments.


    All students in all grades study Afrikaans Second Additional Language.  It is compulsory for all learners to have this

    dictionary:  ‘Die klein woordeboek’ – Pharos (light green). The dictionary costs ±R99.00.


     Students should have a dictionary for each language.


Homework is set every day in every class.  You must be prepared to spend a lot of time doing homework.  It is compulsory to complete all homework tasks.  EVERY LEARNER is issued with a homework diary at the beginning of the year and we request that parents check on the use of the diary and compliance with the homework tasks which have been set.


If we organise an outing or extra lessons for students, you will always be notified by the school, on a school letterhead, in advance.


There will be a Parents/Teachers meeting on Saturday 18th February 2017.  You will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with the teachers.

The second Parents meeting will be held on Saturday 1st July 2017


These reports will be issued to PARENTS ONLY at the Parents’ Meeting on Saturday 1st July 2017.  Parents who are unable to attend this meeting will have to make arrangements to come to school at a later date to collect the report.
