Sorry finger trouble there.
In South Africa education is not free. Our school are mostly good and offer lovely facilities etc but this comes at a cost. So tonight I need to sell the fact that in 2009 our annual school fees per child will be R11150. I am not sure how that compares with the rest of the world but for my little corner of Durban, South Africa its within the norm. Our school is a government school but we only get ten staff for our school and we need twenty four ! hence school fees.
So here's hoping to a quick and peaceful meeting without any major grumblings, which is always helped by the cheese & wine we provide.
