Mariah Thompson started this petition to The Administration of Green Acres School Group

We, the parents of students attending Green Acres School Group, are requesting that the 20% reduction for this term be revised. It is important to note that the system put in place by the Administration of the school was not properly thought out or executed. Also in light of the fact that students will only have online sessions for two (2) hours, Monday to Thursday, it is absurd and ridiculous to expect us to pay 80% of the school's fee. Consideration must be given to the fact that parents still have the responsibility of ensuring the child is properly managed/supervised while accessing these online classes. 

It is obvious too no consideration was given to pupils who, for one reason or another, cannot access the online platform at this time. Poor internet connections, which is of no fault to the parents, since we all know very well the kind of service we receive by these local providers. Then there is the unavailability of electronic gadgets in homes where there are multiple students which poses a problem. Are these parents expected to deposit their hard earned money for a service they will not be able to benefit from?

In the case of the Playgroup, parents find themselves having to do the bulk of the work because the school is only providing worksheets that we have to use to teach our children from. So remind us why in your view you think this can warrant parents paying 80% of the fee?!!

In our view, it seem that the school does not care for our children and is not showing any compassion or concern for their students or the parents who entrusted their children in the care of Green Acres over the many other private schools that are available. We would not want to believe that finance is the school's main driving force and at a time where many parents are being challenged in one way or another by this pandemic are now being demanded, almost with force, that we pay 80% of the fee.

This is a very sad situation and very disheartening to many and we hope the Administration of Green Acres Primary can see their blunder and reconsider their structure of the fees for this term. In all fairness, we hope that instead of the 20% reduction a 50% reduction can be agreed on, which will be mutually beneficial to all involved.
