The recent state budget highlights ongoing commitment to the educational sector and we

commend the state government on recent announcements. With a combined investment of

$716 million, ongoing commitment has been demonstrated in the key areas of student wellbeing,  teacher development and school infrastructure.

Of particular interest and note is the $12.2 million allocated to reducing the administrative and

compliance burden placed on principals. Members will know that this is an area the APF has been strongly advocating as part of our EBA log of claims. This is indeed welcomed support and we

look forward to hearing more about the specifics of this announcement.
