Catholic School Funding Information Released

August 24, 2011 2:48 pm
The National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) has launched a website to give school
communities information about Catholic school funding,
The Australian Government’s Review of Funding for Schooling will finalise its report later this
year. The Report will provide advice to the Government on how all schools should be
funded from the beginning of the 2014 school year. The Government’s response to the
Report is expected during 2012.
“The NCEC school funding website uses official data from the Government’s MySchool
website”, said Mrs Therese Temby, Chair of NCEC.
“The website also summarises the funding policy principles that NCEC has presented to the
Government’s Funding Review”, said Mrs Temby. “NCEC hopes that parents and teachers in
Catholic schools will find the website informative and useful, especially as the public debate
about how best to fund Australia’s schools develops over the next six months or so.”
