Abstract

Verskeie openbare skole dui in briewe, op webtuistes en in aansoekvorms aan dat ’n kosganger uit die skool se koshuis gesit kan word indien koshuisgelde nie betaal word nie. In hierdie artikel word besin oor die regsgeldigheid van uitsetting in die lig van nasionale en provinsiale wetgewing en hofuitsprake. Die artikel wys daarop dat, wat Noordwes betref, dit in die lig van regulasies en die uitspraak in MEC: Department of Education Northwest Province v Fedsas 2016-12-1 saaknr. 021/2016 (HHA) onwettig is om ’n leerder weens wanbetaling van koshuisgeld toegang tot die koshuis te weier.

Caveat magister! The expulsion of boarders from public school hostels due to nonpayment of hostel fees

A number of public schools in South Africa indicate on their websites, on application forms and in letters to parents that a learner will be expelled from the school’s hostel if the hostel fees are not paid. In this article the legality of such expulsion is considered in view of national and provincial legislation as well as judgments of the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal. The legality issue is not a mere academic exercise, as is clear from media reports on the expulsion of boarders as well as a letter quoted in the article which warns parents that their children will not be readmitted to the hostel unless all arrear hostel fees have been paid.
