Well, it depends on what is the money for. If it is to pay for coach, then I do not mind paying. I am currently paying for my DD's wushu lessons outsourced to a vendor.

Some schools do request co-payment for CCAs. These are usually for external coaches. Usually these are subsidised in part by the school.

What is the amount?

I am new to this and found it very strange. So children from lower income family would be excluded from such CCA?

:?

But if the child is from financially difficult family, there seems to be a myriad of funding they can request from. Free textbooks, free uniforms, free pc/internet. I was impressed! Perhaps then they may apply for help on such cca?

You paid for the costume but not the CCA itself right ?
