    The primary school I work for charges $270, including the $40 for book list. My local school (15 km distance from my work) charges $180. You need to source your own supplies. Both have "voluntary" levies too and "please provide a box of tissues / ream of paper" etc. Excursions / incursions / camp / swimming are all extra.

    Kinder is $750 for the year. The rest is subsidized. It includes incursions.

    I'm in Vic if that helps.

    I wish I knew! It is the local public one too, not a private one. It would be $3500 if it wasn't for government funding.

    We have to pay $250 each child per year, that includes a stationary pack with all books etc.

    Also an excursion levy of $175 which you can pay upfront or choose to pay them as they come up. We pay them as they come.

    Swimming lessons are $85 each for two weeks of swimming (we are not doing this anymore at school though because they have lessons all year at the pool anyway)

    Fee's need to paid in Dec for the following year, sh!t timing with Xmas nearby.

    Kinder is a council run kinder and is $280 per term.

    We have no health care cards though, if we did kinder would be free and school would $50 per kid because of the EMA allowance.

    We have 3 in primary and one going into kinder next year, it all adds up but it's their education and its a hell of alot cheaper than private schools.
