Any have a chat to jenny ballmount the princpal or lisa regan and see what the can do for her.

    Regardless of income I think double the cost sounds like a big jump for ANY family!!

    TBH it does not sound right even with schools sending out letters etc DOUBLING is ridiculous!!!!

    I wonder if they are just not offering as high a discount along with the increased fees that make it double? As I can't see a lot of parents just wearing that kind of increase!

    To all the posters who are 'shock horror' a catholic school costs $5000 a year, if it's a really good catholic school then yes it does!! I know catholic schools that cost a lot more than that too! It's the smaller parish schools that are around $2000 but yes a lot of catholic schools are this much!!!!

    Call up and get her in to WSS. They are zoned yes but she will get in to the Autism unit bypassing the zone

    Share A Book, give your current school a call too, ask for the Business Manager.

    I have been a teacher for a long time in all sorts of settings, I'm sure a catholic school won't ask a child with autism to leave the school because her family is experiencing some extreme financial difficulties

    I know I'm not in the same state but I attended a catholic high school and my mum worked for catholic education for years and they would never deny a child to an education based on the financial circumstances of parents.
    If it's where you want her to stay I strongly recommend you speak to either the business manager or someone higher up within catholic Ed. I'm sure there's something that can be done. Good luck :-)
