not all kids require tuition.
cca in general is FOC. overseas trips are not compulsory.
school textbooks and uniforms can cost about $200.

To add on: School fees in most Pr and sec schools are not high. But if your child is in an independent school (only at sec levels), then the fees can be as high as $300+ a month.
CCA may incur fees if there is an external coach, travelling, uniforms etc.
As you can see, there is not straightforward answer. The minimum could be a few tens of dollars a month at Pr levels, and could escalate to over a thousand depending on what your child decides to get involved in.
