Schools will ask parents to contribute towards a contribution fee but these are not mandatory. Schools may also ask for different levies or textbooks but these are not compulsory.

For example we have a school fee, a unit fee, textbooks - and parents pay for all or none - it is up to them.

It varies from school to school. Perhaps ring some of your local ones and ask for the information?

As a high school, our voluntary fees total around $300 per year, about 25% of parents in our area pay. We also have compulsory fees for elective subjects such as cooking, art, wood/metal work etc. We can't afford to pay for the consumables. They are usually $10 or $20 per semester.

Thanks everyone. I seemed to recall that it was voluntary. There was just no mention of an amount in the school enrolment pack I got the other day from our local school and hubby asked.

we have a $35 resource fee per child.

frankly i would never think of not paying it - but i come from a system were the yearly fees were $120 per year in a public school - that were compulsory.
