Catholic schools budget cut by more than 5%

The Tasmanian Catholic School Parents & Friends Federation (TCSPFF), Tasmanian Catholic Education Commission (TCEC), together with Independent Schools Tasmania (IST), have met with Education Minister, Nick McKim, to express extreme concern at the budget cut of more than 5% State funding to our schools. The Minister has informed us that the decision is irrevocable. This will directly impact on our capacity to appropriately fund our Catholic schools.

We already operate at a lower funding level than Government schools.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT PARENTS BECOME INVOLVED IN PUBLIC PROTEST.

Please take time to sign of the Tasmanian Catholic School Parents and Friends Federations Petition available at School Offices, Parishes, Education Offices or go online to sign at:
