We currently have a 3yr old ds, and plan on 2 more children. Part of the reason for a planned larger gap between ds and #2 is so the option of a top private school is more financially achievable for us.
We also bought our house largely based on the school zones in Perth. We live in a very good catchment area (both primary and highschool), but feel that having options is very important. Ds has been enrolled at a highschool that currently costs $20k per yr from yr 7 since birth. We have been saving since then as well. I will also be returning to work at least part time to make it more achievable as well.
My dh has an uncle that has made it known since my pregnancy that he wishes to pay for one of our child's complete education in full. I am reluctant to accept this offer, but my dh feels that we should as it is something that would make his uncle happy. I guess we will see in the years to come.

How do you afford private school fees? What do you sacrifice?
If you want to send your kids to a private school, you make sacrifices.
I have one starting high school and one starting primary next year. Between the two, including uniforms, book lists and lap top, it will be around 12k.
I will pick up extra shifts at work to cover the extra cost.
