Answered on

      608. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Minister for Education and Training:
      I refer to the government's intended changes to the student funding model.
      (1) What will be the reduction in funding to Applecross Senior High School, Atwell College, Baldivis Secondary College, Canning Vale College, Comet Bay College, John Curtin College of the Arts, Lynwood Senior High School, Melville Senior High School, Rossmoyne Senior High School and Willetton Senior High School?
      (2) Will there be any reduction in funding to All Saints' College; Aquinas College; Australian Islamic College, Kewdale; Corpus Christi College; Santa Maria College; Ursula Frayne Catholic College; and Wesley College?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
      (1) Government school budgets for 2018 will be finalised following the February 2018 student census and will depend on the number and characteristics of the students who enrol at the school. It is therefore not possible to provide details of any change in budget for these schools.
      (2) The student-centred funding model does not apply to non-government schools.
