I paid 117 this year and that was her book pack, the computer use, art supplies.
We have a 80 dollar voluntary contribution thing but I didn't pay that. Not yet. They didn't say what it would go towards so until I'm informed I'll keep my money.

DD's school ask for a voluntary payment of $20/term.
Otherwise, I paid for her books, stationary, uniforms. Thats it!
Im sure if there are excursions it'll be a cost but im cool with that

I can't remember the exact amount but its close to $700. Thats $300 fees (voluntary contribution I think), then levies for anything and everything, excursions/incursions, the stationary pack is $50, swimming is $80 (i think its about 8 weeks at a public pool), and then in Year 5 & 6 there are a couple more levies to pay and the actual fee bit is a bit more. Also the school camp is not included in this, which is about $300 for Grade 3+.

Ours are $40 per child per year (voluntary contribution)
Excursions are extra but so far haven't been more than $4.00 and only 1 per term.
That's it. No book list etc.
I was asked to buy a box of tissues for the class room???
Bargain by the looks of things.
