I already get fee relief as mentioned. Our fees include books, stationery, excursions, incursions, swimming lessons, everything other than uniforms, bags, lunchboxes, etc.

I know in some religious schools if you go to the priest/minister and tell them your situation they help waive the school fees for you.
I'm sure if you spoke to someone at the school they could arrange a payment plan or some relief.

OUr private, Christian school is $5000 a year for 3 kids...and will be $5500 once we have all 5 there. That sounds so exxy for a catholic school...
I would speak to them too, our school reduces fees for those who need it

Talk to the school and parish priest. We went thru a phase of extreme financial difficulties when in high school and the school waived the fees for over a year.
I know the school I did my prac at for my teaching degree had several students who thru loss of employment or death in the family couldn't afford the fees and it was reduced/waived.

Are they allowed just to increase with no notice?

It wasn't without notice. They sent letters about it and said they were absorbing the fees in term 1 for the benefit of families. I did not think it affected fee relief families but it does. Am making calls now and it looks like the private Christian school nearby has the cheapest fees with a good education, inclusive of everything, with a good support program for SN kids.

There absolutely has to be a way out of this that doesn't involve the stress and disruption of changing schools!
Can I second the suggestion of talking to the business manager with respect to a bursary or something. Surely the Catholic school system knows something about compassion.

Hi hun have you spoken to them. I know our school isnt as ideal as the one she attends now but it is cheaper and they will do discounts. Tell the you have a healthcard when you ring. They normally do discounts on a indivuaul bases so you have to make a appointment to get the right figure. Any have a chat to jenny ballmount the princpal or lisa regan and see what the can do for her.
Ps sorry for the spelling i am hopeless on this phone.
