Catholic Schools Funding

posted 31 May 2017, 23:42 by Michelle Virgona
The new funding model for schools plans to apply the Socio-Economic-Status (SES) formula to all families in non-government schools, especially affecting those in middle to higher income areas. This funding model assumes for families in high SES areas that every family has the same capacity to pay school fees to the level of elite private schools. If this is a concern to you, then you can do a few things to support our existing systemic funding model.

1. Attend the parent forum and ask lots of questions. The details for the forum are:
  • Thursday 8th June at Marist College North Sydney from 7pm to 8.30pm. RSVP by
  • Monday 5th June to Rachel Noble at mcnsrsvp@syd.catholic.edu.au or 9957 5000.

2. Contact our local federal member via a brief letter, email or phone call to share your concerns. Details for our federal member are - Trent Zimmerman; PO Box 1107, North Sydney, NSW, 20593 Sign the petition http://bit.ly/2rxfMFF

Such support would be greatly appreciated.
