This notice is from the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment (the department), to advise that the department has asked the College to provide a ‘statement of addresses’, in accordance with the Australian Education Regulation 2013 (Cth) (Regulation).
This collection is routinely used to inform Commonwealth school education policy, and to help ensure that Commonwealth funding arrangements for non-government schools are based on need, and are fair and transparent.
The information collected in the statement of addresses will be used to inform school funding calculations. It is combined with data held by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to calculate the estimated capacity of a school community to contribute to the schools’ operating costs (capacity to contribute). Australian Government funding to non-government schools takes this estimated capacity to contribute into account.
