  • $139 million in 2022-23

  • $226.9 million in 2024-25

In sharp contrast, the increases in private schools’ funding are:

  • $690 million in 2023-24
  • $715.6 million in 2024-25
  • $537.1 million in 2025-26

Though the government does have its priorities set, giving $61m for school chaplains.
