$18 million has been continued to fund the Secure Schools Programme across Australia. 

Justice Stephen Rothman

In the past, the Jewish Schools have received above 55% of the amounts allocated and before the last round, we had received about and above 60%.

Justice Stephen Rothman, co-chair of the Australian Council of Jewish Schools, said:  “The Jewish schools are extremely grateful to the Federal Government for the continuation of the Secure Schools Program and particularly for the work of Minister Josh Frydenberg on behalf of schools generally and Jewish schools in particular.
Given the funding of security for the community more generally, the continuation of this program results in new money, which I expect will go in large measure to the Jewish schools and will ameliorate the huge burden of our security costs.”
