The roll-out of the Federal Government’s national school funding plan continues, as the so-called Gonski 2.0 passed the House of Representatives this week.
School funding has been a political issue for many decades and one that is often difficult to understand due to the many complexities not always explained in media coverage.
At Beaconhills, about 50 per cent of our funding comes from parent fees and other 50 per cent from Government (predominantly Federal) funding, as opposed to state schools in our region.
Under the proposed Gonski 2.0, we will receive about a 4.2 per cent increase in Federal Government funding over the next 10 years. Historically, the cost of education rises each year significantly more than the CPI (Consumer Price Index) – and our costs to operate Beaconhills are rising at around 5 per cent each year.
However, the College is confident that proposed funding increase to us of 4.2 per cent will enable us to maintain our current programs with minimal impact on parent fees.
Happy new year – and congratulations…
