Letter from Dan White

Dear Parents/Carers

Demand for places in our Catholic schools has never been greater, and it is not hard to see why.

Our schools continue to provide outstanding opportunities for students in an environment where the gospel values are lived out each day.

In order to meet this demand, the Catholic Education Office Sydney is  growing existing schools and planning  new ones; however, if it is going to be able to meet demand, more schools will need to be built in the years ahead, particularly in the inner-west and south-west regions of Sydney.

To do this, we need the help of the State Government.

With the NSW state election just around the corner, please keep in mind this critical issue.  We are seeking a clear statement from all political parties about what support they are prepared to provide to help meet the capital cost of building new schools.

I will provide more information about this issue in the coming weeks.

Dr Dan White
Executive Director of Catholic Schools
