"The date of the appointment arranged on the e-appointment system is considered as the application date and the person will be considered to have applied even when Visa period or Resident Permit terminates before the appointment date"
To be on the safe side I would ring the Buro and ask them if it still applies as rules do change all the time here and they aren't always quick to change their websites.
I can't answer your question about money for your son as different buro's have different rules so you would need to clarify it with them again.
Here is a link to the Buro website

Just a bit of information. When the time comes for you to renew your son's RP, if your son goes to a state school once he has been there for 1 year you need to get a letter/form from the school just before you renew. If you show the paperwork from the school you will find that they won't charge you anything. However, if he goes to a private school I believe they will charge you, although as you say it will be half price.
