Yes you are right, maybe those figure come from boarding which is an additional 20k a year? I just remember someone saying a family member of theirs (and this was several years ago) was paying 30-40k a year for PLC.

Ok, sneaking on my phone...
Just wondering, when people refer to schools that charge high fees as opposed to low fees, what is your criteria for these descriptions? Is there an arbitrary cut-off point after which a child receives no funding? Or perhaps a sliding scale?

yes, what is an elitist school?
I went to loreto normanhurst which does alright in funding but I do not think its elitist.
my kids are down at barker and abbotsleigh but i am happy with their school at the moment which is $9k for year 4. so not massive..

Loreto Normanhurst fees are over $16k for the year.
On the Barker website, it says it's over $18k per year for year 4.
Interestingly, couldn't find Abbotsleigh fees???
For the average Australian on an average wage, those figures are out of reach for only one child, let alone 2 or 3 or 4! And if they really want their children to attend those schools, they just couldn't afford it.
That's what I think is unfair!

Depends on area u live in. If I lived in an area that had good public schools in my catchment- I would send then there. Unfortunately we are in a new estate and the two local state schools have atrocious reputations and I would never send my kids there so would have to look private but would also want a non denominational one. I work in one so would hope to send them there if u had girls ... Unless an amazing state schools gets built near us in the meantime

I am pretty taken aback that someone would so blatantly say "Someone can't afford it so it's unfair for anyone to have it." What about wealthy parents who send their children to public schools but have the means to supplement their children's education with tutors, music, sports, the arts? Should their children be deprived of these things because others cannot afford them? Is that unfair?
