    I went to an Anglican girls school in Sydney, fees were $12k in year 7, up to $20k for year 12 not including uniforms, books, excursions, extra curricular sports or other activities.

    Per term my parents paid:

    Fees: $4k
    Sporting activities: $200 (not including the one off uniform and equipment costs - I played softball, netball, basketball, touch football and did diving so I had to buy softball mitt as well as the appropriate uniform for each sport)
    Excursions and incursions: $200 a term
    Camps: probably about $500 every year except for year 8
    Books: $300 for the years text books plus $100 in stationery over the year
    Building fund: $175

    Uniforms were about $80/dress (year 7-10), $50 hat, $120 blazer, $75 jumper, $60 vest, $100/skirt (winter 7-10 and all year 11-12), $40 for summer shirts (year 11-12) $50 for winter shirts (different type for 7-10 and 11-12) as well as $10 for the knee high socks and the tie and sports uniforms were at least $50 a piece, so my softball uniform would've been at least $150 with shirt, knickerbockers and the special socks. Regular sports uniform was $30 for the top and $40 for the shorts, $50 for the tracksuit pants and $60 for the track jacket. School swimsuit was $60 and compulsory.

    I think the school had a system where each subsequent sibling cost 10% less than the previous one; and if you paid in full at the start of the year you got 20% reduced fees.

    $5500 for everything except stationery and uniforms. That's for prep, fees go up but only to about $6500 by year 12.
    Independent Christian school. 20 percent discount for second and subsequent siblings.

    at the moment DD is enrolled in prep for 2015 at a private christain school.

    (neither DH nor I are religious but it is the best proforming school in the area, kids seem well behaved and polite also)

    Fees are currently $4000 and go up to $8000 odd dollars in kindy.

    almost double for high school.

    When we move it will be $2800 for all 3 in a catholic primary school, not including stationary or uniforms or swimming lessons.

    High school is an Anglican school and it is currently $12,000 per student, goodness knows how much come 2017.

    I will go back to work when they start high school to pay for the fees!

    ETA This is in Brisbane.

    DD is not at school yet, but she & our other children will be going to an independent christian school, about 4k per year. It will be a huge financial commitment for us, but worth every cent in my opinion. When my child is spending 6 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week, 40 weeks a year at school, I want it to be a positive environment. I'm also a school teacher, so I'm a little picky when it comes to schooling

    I think we also need to add in where we live here because I think that makes a huge difference. We are in Brisbane. At the moment DS goes to a state school - so free. I am looking at enrolling DS & DD in an independent Anglican school to start in Year 7 - at the moment the fees are $11,000 each for Year 7. Otherwise, I have 2 Catholic schools in mind - one of which costs around $4,000 per year and the other around $6,000. Not sure what we'll do yet.

    I have just paid the yearly fee for our local Catholic Primary School in Sydney which was $2062.00 for one child in Kindy. There are discounts for each subsequent children. For High School we will b going to a Private Independant Catholic School for girls and fees are currently about $8k a year for Year 7. They do offer 10% off tuition only for siblings.

    Hey, I think thats pretty good in comparative to full time childcare which without the rebate would be about $20,000 a year +.
