On 20 September 2018 the Australian Government announced that it will implement a new methodology used in the calculation of the Commonwealth’s needs-based funding arrangements for non-government schools.
As part of this implementation, the Australian Government’s Department of Education and Training will shortly be undertaking the 2019 Student Residential Address Collection.
As a parent/guardian you do not need to provide any information directly to the department. The only thing you need to do is ensure your address details are up-to-date with our School. You will have recently received an email from the School asking you to review and update your family information on our School Database; Edumate. In addition to ensuring that we are able to contact you, storing up-to date information is important for the purpose of the School’s compulsory government reporting.
We will provide the department with de-identified address information for all of our students’ families. This means we will provide addresses but no student names. The Statement of Addresses notice below provides more information, as well as the separate FAQs document.
Should you have any questions or concerns with regard to updating your details, please contact the School’s registrar.
