i remember paying for my son K2 graduation ceremony & that was conducted by PAP sch. it was 10yrs ago so i cant remember the price. Then he graduated from primary sch & there was more fee to pay as he went in a christian sch eg fund raisings (few times a yr). they have a prom nite when he graduated at pri 6, we didnt attend as we went away for long holiday. cant recall if there's a fee.
im not surprise if the sch charge you $38 for 1 parent. usually it says $38 for 1 adult, $60 for both. i've heard it from others about charging high tix price. my thoughts? well, either your hubby or you go, to save cost. someone need to go. or both of you go & leave the kids with your mum or in-laws. too costly to have whole family but very sad if none of you attend.
i will also feedback to sch asking them to give a special price for families with kids to attend.
