      1. Hi
        Our fees are minimal – R 200 per year. However, you must be achieving a minimum of 65% for both Mathematics and Physical Science – as shown on your latest school report – November 2016. Bring this report into the office (200 Pine Street, corner of Jabu Ndlovu Street) from Wednesday 11th January 2017, and you will be required to write an hour long Maths Entrance Test. If you pass the test and we have a space, you will be invited to join. We do not offer extra lessons – we run enrichment lessons helping bright, hardworking students get top results! Kind regards, Rose Smuts

      2. Hi guys this year I will be doing grade10 ,so l will be starting to do science ,and l must bring my school report on the day of school opening and my problem is that I won’t be able to make it because I will be going to school. So l was wondering if is there another way to bring my report? And do you take learners who will be starting grade 10?

        1. Yes there is; scan and email it to
          You can write the entrance test at 0730 on 14 January. Submit your report at the same time. We only take 30 Grade 10 students so be sure to be there early!!

    1. Sadly we are not able to help with upgrades – we simply do not have the funding or accommodation to do this! We focus on enrichment education for Grade 8 – 12 Students who are talented in Mathematics. By providing the best possible Tutors and resources, we assist these students in getting A symbols, and thereby, bursaries to study further at universities! I see that the Msinduzi High School do upgrades here in Pmb.

      1. Hi, my sisters are doing grade 10 this year wil it be possible fr them to join the tuition this term? And how much is the tuition in Maths and physical science?

        1. Grade 10 is full for 2016, however we do run a waiting list so they should come into the office bringing their latest school reports with them. They MUST be studying both Mathematics and Physical Science, and should be attaining around 65% for both of these key subjects. They would sit our entrance test, and if they pass, they would be added to the waiting list – if anyone leaves, they would be notified and could then join us.

  1. Hi I have 2 girls that are doing grade 9 and 11, I would like to Errol them for this year please advise the procedure.

    1. Firstly, both girls must be studying Natural/Physical Science and core Mathematics, and should be attaining around 65% for both of these subjects. They should come into the office bringing their latest school reports with them, sit the entrance test, and if they pass, they would be considered for entry IF there is a space in these two classes. The Grade 11 students would also have to be interviewed by the Exec Director. Remember PROTEC Pmb opens in mid-January and our places are snapped up very quickly!

  2. protec pmb, is really doing wonders for us the learners. when i came to protec early this year, around early april, i came with a report written 67% for maths. i now say, after writting my june exams, i now have a report written 91% for mathematics . i am really gratefull, protec has really helped me!!

  3. good morning Mrs Smuts, I used to attend Protec Academy, a few years back and Im currently trying to seek for part time employment, and I was wondering if it would be ok with you, If I put you as one of my references, added the work experience at the witness and computer course we did to my CV.

    1. Hello Karen
      Sadly PROTEC is an enrichment education program – we do not offer extra lessons in maths. Our donors support us in assisting students in getting top marks leading on to universities. Extra lessons are offered by UKZN and Academic Support Programmer in Hilton. Kind regards, Rose
