WA to charge school fees for 457 holders

The WA government has outlined in its 2013/2014 state budget that from 2015 all school children who are dependents of 457 visa holders must pay for school fees.

The fee structure will depend on the number of children per family going to school and will be adjusted accordingly. These fees however will not be allocated to the Education budget and will be held by the Treasury department.

Fees are estimated to be $4000.00 per child per year. Reduction will occur if there are more than one child attending school.
