Dear Parents & Caregivers,

Please read the attached notice from the Australian Government Department of Education and Training. Every year, the Australian Government collects data on Student Residential Addresses and Other Information. This notice requests that the College provides the department with a statement of student addresses and other information.

Purpose of the collection

This collection is routinely used to inform Commonwealth school education policy, and to help ensure that Commonwealth funding arrangements for non-government schools are based on need, and are fair and transparent.

A statement of addresses contains the following information about each student at the school:

  • Student residential address (not student names)
  • Student level of education (i.e. whether the student is a primary or secondary student)
  • Student boarding school status (i.e. whether the student is boarding or a day student)
  • Names and residential addresses of students’ parent(s) and/or guardian(s)

There is no opt-out from providing this information. Please be advised that personal information relating to this collection is protected by the Privacy Act 1988. Parents and guardians can also contact the department directly if they would like more information about privacy. The department’s Privacy Policy is available at www.education.gov.au.
