Dear Ms Legge

We acknowledge receipt of your Freedom of Information request (below).

You have made your request to the Commonwealth Department of Education (department). While the department can confirm that Orara High School was apportioned a funding allocation of Commonwealth Recurrent Funding, this funding allocation was apportioned by the New South Wales State Government. The department does not have records of how the Orara High School distributes money in terms of the Support Unit and therefore does not hold the documents you request.

Accordingly, you may wish to direct your FOI request to the New South Wales Department of Education, which is responsible for the administration of New South Wales schools.

Please see below the contact details for New South Wales Department of Education information access requests:

Information Access Unit
Department of Education
Level 5, 105 Phillip St
T 02 7814 3525
E [email address]

Further information regarding how to make information access requests is available on the New South Wales Department of Education website at

Accordingly, we will treat your FOI request as withdrawn, unless we hear otherwise from you by COB Monday 4 November 2019.

Please contact us at [email address] if you have any questions.
