They leave an impression that independent schools receive a larger share of government funding then government schools. This impression is given by not including all the facts. With todays newsletter we have included a pamphlet from the Australian Parents Council entitled Australian Schools and School Funding Busting the Myths. We hope that this will answer any questions that the recent advertising campaign may have created. Some of our students receive their Zone Swimming ribbons from Olympian of 1964 Peter Tonkin.
