    we got our bill today so i know exactly now: all up including excursions and fees we will pay $1030 for two kids. i actually thought it was a bit more so I am relieved. The school policy is that part of it is compulsory (although i guess it isn't really) and the rest is not. But they cannot go on excursions or camps unless they have paid, or parents have spoken to principal.
    Uniforms I spent around $700, including shoes and runners.
    Book lists were around $100 and $130.

    So total for everything is $1960 for two kids in primary school.

    oh i forgot kinder, it is $200 a term, so $800 a year. I think we got about a quarter back in CCB later on from memory.

    DD2 & DD3 are in Year 3 this year. It cost us $160.50 for DD2 and $150.50 for DD3. That's school fees, textbooks, mathletics, voluntary contribution and gymnastics in Term 2. Excursions will be extra. DD2's sport is $5 per week bus fares. DD3's sport is at the school so its free. There are also various creative arts programs either before/after school or at lunch times which are free except for any performances.

    DD1 in a public high school in Year 8 is $380. Thats texbooks, mathletics and voluntary contributions etc. Excursions are extra. She pays $5 for sport each week.

    DS1 - 1st grade

    Ds2 & DD - kindergarten.

    $40 - 1st kid, $40 2nd kid, $30 3rd kid is what they asked for as a contribution.

    I supplied all three with tissues, wipes, glue sticks, bandaids, whiteboard markers and plastic folders for readers.

    Pay for excursions, incursions, sport ets as it happens, but usually no more than a few dollars.

    We get no government funding which is why ours is so high I guess.

    The first school DD1 went to for prep was $100 BUT that was all stationary supplied. The other years had to buy their own stationery so it was $49.

    The last school the kids went to was $50 per student.

    This school so far appears to be nothing?! I haven't seen or heard anything of a levy and it is week 5?!

    If you got no government funding your fees would be more like $30,000.

    $40 a year school fees, plus books, tissues, excursions, maths programs etc on top of that.

    I think they might do swimming towards the end of the year, not sure how much that costs.

    Not sure.

    3yo preschool / kinder here in Vic gets no government funding.

    4 yo council run kindergarten gets funding. Not sure if it is the same as your preschool though. After kinder is mandatory Prep in primary school.
