We were reading the local new online today when we saw the headline:
“Parents give millions to few State schools”.
And then the article stated that:
“A handful of WA public schools each raised more than $1 million from parents' fundraising drives, fees, charges and contributions to supplement Government funding, the latest version of the My School website has revealed.
The figures, based on 2011 financial records, show that parents of some State school students are shelling out much more from their own pockets to cover course fees, books, camps and excursions.
At Churchlands Senior High School, parents paid more than $2.2 million, while those at Mt Lawley SHS handed over about $1.3 million.
Another six schools, including Carine, Willetton and Rossmoyne senior high schools, Shenton College, Perth Modern School and Woodvale Secondary College, received more than $1 million from parents.
My School, which was updated on Wednesday, says that figures listed under "fees, charges and parental contributions" include voluntary contributions, course charges, overseas student fees and parent payments for excursions and camps. Donations, fundraising and canteen revenues are also listed under "other private sources".”
Wow! banyak jugak diaorang dapat from parents’ ‘donations’ ni ye.
Patutlah when we got the bill for Miss 13 school fees, it looked like this.
Banyak noh charges for ‘voluntary’ stuff ni, hehehehe….
Bila masa I angkat tangan to volunteer pun I tak tau lah
Memang lah it’s a pittance kalau banding dengan private schools fees yang beribu2 ringgit per term tu.
Miss 13’s school has around 1700 students from year 8 to year 12 so kalau sorang bagi around $500 in fees…
Setahun dapat lah $850k!
And then they also receive some more fundings from the government on top of the $850k….
Kaya they all, hahahaha….
We dont mind paying because it’s a really good public school. It’s our responsibility to help the school maintain its standards kan so it will keep on being a good school.
Semalam I cakap I nak buat doughnuts to take to Sunday school kan..
The doughnuts I made pagi tadi.
I prepared the dough malam tadi and let it rise in the fridge overnite. It rose beautifully.
Pagi tadi keluarkan sekejap so tak sejuk sangat and just gelek and terap and goreng.
Senang macam ni, tak lah rushing pagi2 nak buat segala benda.
And for dinner pulak, I made oven baked chicken wings makan dengan hasselback potatoes and mixed veges stirfry.
Hitam legam the wings sebab letak kicap pekat and kicap manis kan .
I used asparagus, carrots and mushrooms for the stirfry.
And ini muka terbaru tuan rumah bercamwhoring with her usual colours, hikhikhik….
Ini baru my usual colours, all dull and dark. Faded black jeans from too frequent washing with dark olive top and green/black scarf….
Yang ini minah sesat sekejap…
Peach coloured jeans you! Nasib baik top tu kaler hitam kan so a bit toned down lah!
And this one is mother daughter bonding time
Sessi amik gambar sama2 pun bonding time jugak mah! h
