Classes at Madina Secondary High School were forced to an early closure last term due to the non-release of the tuition Free Funds (TFF) from government.
More than 400 students from this all- girls school alone were affected but it is understood the figures could be more in the province as other schools reportedly have also not received the funds owing to them.
Madina's deputy principle-administration Lucy Mohe said the girls were sent home a week before they were due for their term two break as the school had run out of funds to pay for food rations and fuel for its generator.
When quizzed on project fees Mrs Mohe said with the nod from the provincial education board they have imposed a fee of K200.
However that this had been done prior to the circular that had been issued by the national education department.
However, she said they had stopped adding also that they had not collected these fees from all their students. She said despite the school not having enough funds that classes had recommenced and they are a week late into the third term.
