School Fees

As you are aware our school is a self-funded school and we are totally reliant on school fees to pay for the running costs of the school. Please can you ensure that your school fees are paid on time!!

If there is a problem paying the school fees on time please contact either the school accountant or secretary:

Grant Bullock: 0820428034 or email: grantrbullock@gmail.com
Tracey: 033 343 4086 or email: tracey@capulumcollege.co.za

Overdue school fees procedure is on the website. Please remit on time to avoid suspension from lessons.


High School Weekly Ethic Reports

High School Weekly Ethic Reports are emailed to parents every Friday afternoon. These reports are sent to parents to advise them on how the learners are behaving during the week. The idea is to help you the parent reward your child for good behaviour for that week rather than punishing their bad behaviour. We would like to develop a positive environment and the importance of doing the right things in the school setting.

Ethics we encourage

  • Do no harm – No bullying or hurting people
  • Make Things better – Do homework
  • Be respectful all the time
  • Respect others – Tell the truth, keep promises

Drug Free School

Please note from time to time randomised drug and alcohol tests, in accordance to our school rules, will be carried out to protect Capulum College’s good name of as drug free school. Copy of the school rules will be emailed to you and a copy can be found on the school website.
