Parents will have been following media reports in regard to the changes to government education policy, specifically the funding debate has once again reared its head. The information reported by the press is scant, as is that which has been  provided to schools at this stage. We eagerly await greater clarity around the implications, if any for Hills Grammar. The School and Finance Committee of School Council will assess the changes to policy as more detail comes to hand and then communicate further. In the meantime the debate will rage in the media and across the floor of the parliament – be cautious not to rely upon these as sources of accurate information. The School will more fully advise parents of any implications at the appropriate point in time.
