Call for meeting with Premier by Chairs of peak education bodies

Mr Barry O’Farrell, MP
Premier, and Minister for Western Sydney

Dear Mr O’Farrell

We, the under-signed, Chair the peak bodies which collectively represent 100% of the secondary school-aged children of NSW and their parents. We wish to express our strong opposition to the NSW State Government’s announced funding cuts to the essential service of education. The Gonski review clearly identified a need to invest in education by $6.5 billion in today’s terms to attain and maintain a competitive international position. Under your savage cuts NSW state education will be doubly underfunded. We urgently seek a meeting with yourself and Minister Piccoli.

Yours faithfully

 

DR JOHN COLLIER
Chair, Association Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA NSW / ACT)
Head, St Andrew’s Cathedral School
