Hartzell Primary School fees

A Primary School classroom
Children in a Primary School classroom

    Each child must pay a fee to attend even primary school. The parents of many children in the area are unemployed farm workers, who make very little even when employed, so we are presently paying the fees for 401 of the 950 children at the school.  We also furnish uniforms for many who need them.

    Rapid inflation has undercut the school’s ability to provide books and supplies as they have done in the past. It may be necessary for us to help in this area, as well. We are investigating the relative merits of shipping them versus buying them there.
