It’s that time of year again when our little ones put uniforms back on, pack school bags and get ready to learn.
But for us big people it can be overwhelming and stressful working out the costs associated with heading back to school.
The Ardoch Youth Foundation is a charity that helps disadvantaged children and young people reach their potential through education. The Ardoch Youth Foundation has produced a guide for parents and carers on how to manage and reduce school costs.
“While the aim of this guide is to help inform you about the different costs of education and assist you to manage these, we believe that the personal role you play in supporting children to learn is the most critical. By engaging in what children are learning, talking about the benefits of school and building positive relationships with people at your child’s school you reinforce the importance of education, which will be the key to them having chances and choices in life.” Ardoch Youth Foundation, Ardoch School Costs Guide 2018
