As with most independent schools in South Africa, our school fees don't cover the full cost of education. We do this to keep our school affordable to more families. The resulting deficit is met by fundraising and generous gifts from individuals, families and businesses. Thank you to our faithful supporters. You make the Ambleside opportunity possible!

The Vine School is currently seeking support for two projects. If you wish to allocate your contribution to one of them, please ensure that your donation is referenced. If you wish to receive a receipt for tax purposes, please contact the school to ensure we have your correct name and address.

MySchool Card

Become a supporter by signing up for a MySchool card. MySchool donates thousands of Rands every month to South African schools and organisations. Best of all it costs you absolutely nothing. Just swipe your MySchool card when you buy from one of the partner stores and a small percentage of what you spent will go to the school of your choice. Sign up and start supporting The Vine School right now.

Sports field

The new sports field cost R130 000 for the wellpoint, irrigation system, ground preparation and planting of grass. Funds still need to be raised for trees, paving and supporters' benches and stands. Please reference contributions to the field upgrade - SPORTSFIELD

Educational Fund

The Vine School NPC currently has 19 families who receive partial financial support from the Bursary Fund. All recipients are assessed to ensure that there is a genuine financial need, and that they will make a positive contribution to the life of the school. By supporting the Educational Fund, donors assist disadvantaged children to realise their potential and be freed from the poverty trap. Please reference contributions - EDUCATIONALFUND
