Cost of kids and school report
23 January 2011
The latest report in Bankwest's on-going Social Indicator Series has revealed school expenses - including uniforms, textbooks and excursions - are putting a further squeeze on the family budget with the cost totalling almost $2,000 per year for each child.
The "Cost of Kids and School" report revealed during the lifetime of an average primary and high school education Australian parents could expect to fork out more than $25,000 on ad hoc expenses.
For students with additional private school fees, parents would on average pay close to
$100,000 per child, based on the current year's survey results.
