Zimbabwean School Hikes Fees To ZWL$1.3 Million Per Term1 year ago
Falcon College has set school fees for the 2022 second term at ZWL$1 290 000 and advised parents and guardians with children enrolled at the school that they may be asked to pay top-up fees as the term progresses.
The college, located in Esigodini, Umzingwane District, Matabeleland South Province, said parents who wish to pay school fees in US dollars will be exempted from any top-up.
In a letter to parents dated 11 April 2022, Andrew Marchussen, the Chairman of Falcon College Board of Governors, said parents who attended the School Fee proposal meeting overwhelmingly voted in favour of the proposal. He wrote:
Dear Falcon Parents,
I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all those Parents who either attended or sent proxies to the School Fee proposal meeting which was conducted by Mr John McTaggart at the College in the Turner Hall on Wednesday morning during the completion of Founders’ Day.

Without Parental support, it would be very difficult for the College to maintain the high standard of education to which we have all become accustomed.
We had an overwhelming vote in favour of the proposal, which is outlined below:
- The fee for the Second Term has been set at Z$ 1 290 000. This is to cover the period from May through to the end of August.
- Please note, as always, clearance certificates will be required for entry to the College at the beginning of the term.
Unfortunately, given the difficulty in accurately forecasting inflation trends, especially given the recent volatility, parents should note that we may have to raise a further fee by way of a top-up.
Those parents who wish to pay the fee in US$ will be exempted from any top-up. If this option is of interest to you please see either Mr Alistair Speirs at the Bulawayo office or Mr John McTaggart at Falcon to discuss this.
