Franciscan Matric Project

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


ADMISSION 2017


The Franciscan College is a full-time Grade 10, Grade 11 and Grade 12 programme. We are registered with the Gauteng Department of Education as an Independent school.  The school was started in 1986 by Fr. Stan Brennan in response to requests from parents on the East Rand.  Each year we have obtained consistently good matriculation results, with a high exemption rate especially in Mathematics and Physical Science.


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.

The fees for 2017 will be R12 300.  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    On registration (This payment is non-refundable)

R1 100 at the end of February 2016

R1 100 at the end of March 2016

R1 100 at the end of April 2016

R1 100 at the end of May 2016

R1 100 at the end of June 2016

R1 100 at the end of July 2016

R1 100 at the end of August 2016

R1 100 at the end of September 2016

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.


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.


PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER IF YOU ARE NOT COMPLETELY SURE THAT YOU WILL BE ATTENDING AS THE REGISTRATION FEE OF R3 500 IS NON-REFUNDABLE EXCEPT IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES.                                                                              


2. REGISTRATION

(Only original reports and statements will be accepted when you register, no photocopies please.)

Grade 10, Grade 11 and Grade 12 registration begins on Monday 4th January 2017 and will continue until the classes are full.


2.1 Students who are registering for Grade 10, 11 or 12 must bring their ORIGINAL FINAL 2016 school report with a school stamp or Grade 12 statement of symbols, I.D. Book or Birth Certificate and Parent’s I.D.  You will then complete a registration form.


2.2 At the same time you must collect a bank deposit slip from the school.


2.3 You must then deposit R3 500 at any Standard Bank using the bank deposit slip, which you collected from the school.


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.


3.    ATTENDANCE

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 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.



4. RULES AND DISCIPLINE

Each student and his/her parent will be required to read and 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.


5. HOMEWORK

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.


6. TESTS/EXAMS

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

STUDENTS DO NOT HAVE STUDY LEAVE BEFORE EXAMS


7. LIFE ORIENTATION

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.


8. OUTINGS/EXTRA LESSONS

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


9. MATHS/MATHS LITERACY

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.


10. LANGUAGES

Students should have a dictionary for each language.


11. MID YEAR AND YEAR END EXAMS

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.

N.B. PARENTS MEETINGS

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

JUNE EXAM REPORTS

These reports will be issued to PARENTS ONLY at the Parents’ Meeting on Saturday 1 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.
