Make your vote count for your child’s education

Every child’s education is affected by the decisions and policies of our State Government.

As we head towards a State Election this Saturday, parents are encouraged to consider how each political party is promising to support our Catholic schools.

Catholic Education South Australia has asked Political Parties to respond to a number of issues that are important to ensure that every child receives the best education possible.

All six of the major parties have acknowledged the significant contribution of Catholic Education SA and respect the right of parents to choose the school that best meets the needs of their child.

Please go to the Catholic Education South Australia website to:

  • Compare what each party is offering
  • Read the full statement supplied by each of the six major parties
  • Explore other resources
