 Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy: Jubilee of Deacons
"A servant of Jesus Christ" (Gal 1:10). We have listened to these words that the Apostle Paul, writing to the Galatians, uses to describe himself.

Executive director Ross Fox also said the projections used to claim how schools will be funded in the coming years are not credible because they fail to consider current school funding policies, instead relying on historical trends to make projection.

comparisons to create a misleading picture of how Australian schools are funded.
