I am shortly going to be moving over to study brick laying at the Sunshine Coast TAFE college in Nambour. I am entering with my family on a student visa for initially a period of two years.....Hopefully longer!
Anyway I have just found out that the education authority are expecting me to pay $2,000 per child (of which I have ywo) per term .....of which there are 4 terms per year. I nearly fell off my perch at this stage as the full realisation hit me that I am going to have to fork out $16,000 per year to school my kids in a state school .......!!! I could accept it if I was sending them top private school but not state school. They are only 9 and 10 years old ....is this beaurocracy gone mad?
Has any one got any advice form me?
