Hi, I am a fulltime student that does part time locum work. Do I not qualify for some sort of rebate

As a fulltime student I do locum work to support myself and my 2 kids and pay my bond ( I've worked before). Do I not qualify for some sort of tax discount due to the fact that I'm a fulltime student? I sometimes during holidays earn up to R10000 a month, otherwise I bring home about R4500-R6000 a month

I wish that were true, but unfortunately there are no tax breaks for students. It would be a fantastic idea and really help motivate people to up-skill themselves.
