Schools and Colleges - Receipts and Payments

MS McRAE - asked the Minister for Education and Training on notice on 27 March 1996:

(1) What was the amount of money spent by each (a) school and (b) college in the calendar year 1995, on all expenses other than teacher's salaries.

(2) How much (a) was allocated by your Department; (b) came from other sources; and (c) what were the other sources.

MR STEFANIAK - the answer to Ms McRae's question is:

(1) Money spent by each college and school is detailed at Attachment A. Not all colleges and schools have provided advice due to the industrial bans. Payments by colleges and schools do not include either teaching/non-teaching salaries or school operating costs for which payment is made by central office.

In 1995, payment by Central Office for college/school non-salary operating costs totalled $32.2m. These costs included stationery, utilities, rates, cleaning, communications, repairs and maintenance, plant and equipment, special needs transport, furniture, computing and Comcare premiums.

(2) Attachment A details sources of receipts by school into departmental, external, other and transitory. The external funding is from DEET paid to the schools as grants for special purposes. Other sources of funding include various fund raising including voluntary contributions and subject levies as well as interest. Transitory payments, which are predominantly for excursions, are held in trust by schools.
