The College wishes to advise parents that we are undertaking a review of our Socio Economic Status (SES) score. The SES score of a school affects the amount of Commonwealth funding that is payable under the Act to the approved authority for the school. A school’s SES score determines its “capacity to contribute percentage”, which in turn is a factor in the formula that determines the “base amount” of Commonwealth funding payable.
The lower a school’s SES score, the lower its capacity to contribute percentage, and the greater the base amount of Commonwealth funding to the school (on a per-student basis). Conversely, the higher a school’s SES score, the higher its capacity to contribute percentage, and the lower the base amount of Commonwealth funding to the school (on a per-student basis).
In order to review the College’s SES score we must provide the Department of Education all of our students addresses. As in previous SES reviews, this information is kept private and is only used for the SES score calculation.
For Families living in Australia, it is requested that you please log in to Parent Lounge to check and update your Residential Address by April 30 2017.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this review process.
