when submitting your tax return, can you as a private individual make any claims on school stationary (books, pens etc), private school fees and / or gap insurance for medical aids?

School stationery and school fees are both personal expenditure and therefore you cannot claim as a tax deduction. Gap cover is treated as short term insurance and not medical cover which means it is also not deductible for tax purposes unfortunately.
