Finances

The ASC, as an incorporated body, is the employer of the staff at John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School. The School operates on a budget approved by the Anglican Schools Commission each year. The School Council has responsibility for formulating and managing the budget. The School is funded from three main income sources:

  • Parent contributions by way of school fees and other levies and donations. This equates to about 28% of the School’s income.
  • State per capita grants. The State Government pays a grant based on the number of students, the Commonwealth funding category and the enrolment level. These funds are approximately 24% of the School’s income.
  • Commonwealth recurrent grants. The Commonwealth Government pays a grant to the Anglican Schools.
