Back to school costs are putting over 1 third of parents into debt

They're now spending 999 euro per primary child.

Over a third of parents in Dublin admit they'll have to cut items such as new shoes or gym gear from their school budget due to the costs.

Extra-curricular activities are among the biggest primary school costs with parents forking out up to €153 per child.

Meanwhile, school lunches cost around €142 per year.
