Do you still get family tax benefit or does he get study allowance??
If he doesn’t work at all, no luxuries. Definitely no schoolies.
I never worked before I left school. My only out of school hours activity at his age was Girls Brigade which is similar to what Girl Guides which was a lot more expensive in general but we didn’t go on camps like they did either. We paid a weekly fee which covered some crafty things we did. If I knew my parents couldn’t afford extras I didn’t ask. I remember my Dad having to go to hospital a few times and running out of sick leave and holiday pay. There was a School Camp during that time. I didn’t even tell them about it.
