Default schooling costs

Hello all

We have submitted our ITA today, with no job offer. so fingers crossed we get a yes !

We have 2 primary school age children, and would really like to know whether we would have to pay for them to attend school , and does it make a difference if we get WTR or a PR visa

Thanks

Dave and Helen

I think you're fine with either visa, you'll have stationary costs and 'voluntary' contributions to pay and school uniform (in some schools). Check out Psychopandys update, she lists all the costs they've come up against so far. It's in NZ Update called About time too (I think) x

Hi Dave and Helen,
Where are you thinking of settling? There are lots of private schools in New Zealand but at the public schools you only have to pay a school fund and for stationery. Most now have school uniforms as well and PE kits, trips etc.
My hubby lived there for most of his life but didn't have kids then, have got most of the info from his sister. x

Hi Dave and Helen

I am sure someone told me it cost them $700 per week per child to send them to school as they did not have PR or a WTR.

I have just got the bill from the college and it will cost me $562 to send both girls to school for the year. That is without uniform costs which cost an arm and a leg eg school jumper $90, school shirt $50. Not Cheap

You're right, if you don't have a visa at all you'd have to pay, but I think the OP was asking what the difference in paying would be between having WTR or PR visas. Either would get you 'free' schooling.
