Madge opens 12m school

No wonder MADONNA is charging 200 for tickets to her concerts these days.

She must be feeling the pinch after forking out 12MILLION to set up a Kabbalah school in New York.

The Queen of Pop is opening the specialist centre just down the road from her Big Apple apartment at the end of the year.

The Kabbalist Grammar School For Children The K School for short will teach primary-age pupils the beliefs of the mystical Jewish faith.

Of course, the cash is a drop in the ocean to multi-millionairess Madge, but shes never been one to squander her hard-earned cash in the past.

A source close to the singer told me: The school has been a dream of Madonnas for some time.

Education means a lot to her and she was keen to make the most of her money by leaving a lasting mark as well as helping kids.

She has been really dedicated to putting money away to pay for the building and shes delighted to finally own it.

The papers have been signed and the school will be opening its doors to the first class in December.

Parents who want their five-year-old offspring to join the roll call will face several tough hurdles.

They must be Kabbalists before they are even sent an application form for the fee-paying academy.

The strict entry policy will also involve a gruelling academic test for the youngster and a probing family interview.

Places wont come cheap, either. Parents can expect to pay upwards of 2,000 a term for the privilege of sending their kids to the school in Manhattan a few blocks from Broadway.

Pupils will get normal lessons in reading, writing, art and maths.

But Madge has insisted that spirituality is at the centre of every lesson.

It is just the latest Kabbalah-blah-blah madness in Madonnas life.

Last week I revealed that her hubby GUY RITCHIE was showing signs he had had enough of the religion creeping into their lives.

The Brit movie director threatened to thump a Rabbi adviser after he kept interrupting a private conversation he was trying to have with his wife.

Madonna kicks off the UK leg of her Re-invention tour in Manchester on August 14.

But despite whatever mystic nonsense Madge believes in right now, the tour is amazing and worth every penny of the entry price.
