SOS !! Primary school textbooks

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

I think it should be around +/- $150 excluding the stationeries (additional +/-$40).

Excluding stationaries, school bag, pencil case......and school uniform, the books I remembered should be a little less than $100. School uniforms, bag and stationaries will come up to a sizable amount too.
