School asks for parents to pay to see children graduate

My son is graduating from kindergarten soon and the school has decided to hold the ceremony outside of its premises this year. With my other children, the events were always held on school grounds. So I was looking forward to something different.

Then I received a memo from the school asking each parent to pay BND15 for the ticket, BND30 for renting the robe and BND7 for the photo. We have already been paying BND130 for tuition every month, and now we’re asked to fork out more to see our son graduate. We as parents did not vote for the ceremony to be held at a “grander” venue; that was a decision entirely made by the school. Now we’re asked to pay an additional BND30?
