Petition to continue studies


Many top matric achievers received bursaries from the Free State Education Department to study further, but despite working hard and getting good grades, many of these students are now at risk of being suspended from college/university because their fees have not been paid!

According to a statement by the DA councillors, they want to call on the Free State Department of Education to stand by their word and pay the fees they committed to paying.

“The fact that this department cannot stay afloat and keep its finances in order is no excuse – our students are stranded.

The DA will keep fighting for affected students and have started a petition to raise funds and the matter has been raised at a provincial level, and they will now take these petitions to Parliament,” reads the statement.
