Update for Parents - 5 April 2016
We continue to work diligently with lawyers to ensure registration and funding are unaffected.
ISC remains open and welcomes new enrolments.
Term 1 ends this Friday 8 April. Term 2 starts on Tuesday 26 April.
We kindly ask you to ensure that all accounts are settled and up to date before going away on school break.
Below is an update about the ongoing processes for registration/government funding:
On 29 March we were notified by the Department of Education and Training (DET) that the new cutoff date for lodging an internal review of the Commonwealth decision to revoke recurrent funding was pushed back to 26 April 2016.
A comprehensive submission will be made in time. We estimate that it will take around a month to get a response back from the DET regarding the Commonwealth funding – late May/early June.
Meanwhile registration and funding from the ACT will be subject to another submission that will be made in the coming weeks.
Furthermore, on 31 March we submitted the registration renewal application for 2017 - 2021 to the ACT Education Directorate.
Today, a strategic and comprehensive plan is enacted that encompasses a review of governance, financial management and the school relationship with AFIC.
We value your patience during recent turbulent times and thank you for your continued commitment to the school.
Rest assured that we are doing everything possible to achieve these outcomes, of which we are optimistic.
