    Question Primary schools

    Sorry to be starting my time here with 2 question threads!

    We are new to Australia (2 years - about to become citizens ) and to schooling since my oldest is only 2 and a half. I'm wondering about state schools, private schools - and where exactly Catholic schools fit into the picture? What are school fees like at the three different types (approximately)?

    State schools are government funded and range in price our local works out to be about $250 per child per year. Private Schools I think get some federal funding but mostly user pays and fees start at about $1000-$5000 per term. Catholic or independent schools are often run by religious institutions and also user pays but much more affordable approx range $500-$1000 per term. Check out schools in your area ask for prices and a school tour. We have been very happy with our local state school 2boys there and 1 at the local state high school.
