Cost of school iPads makes them tough tablet to swallow
Despite reports highlighting cost of free education - nothing changes
I always groan when I see the school uniforms for sale before the school summer holidays have even begun. I always complain when the book list comes home from school mid-March, due for completion and return to school, with monies, usually at the time when we have a communion, confirmation, birthday or some other such expense.
And I always rant - a lot - when requests for registration fees, voluntary contributions and “extras” arrive in the door, due for imminent payment, and adding to the year’s many expenses.
