Sydney Catholic Schools sees itself as a vital learning community that is highly supportive of research and further education. In recent years, there has been substantial growth in government accountability surveys and research applications. This has meant that accepting all appropriate requests is no longer practicable without impacting significantly on learning programs and teacher workload. As a result, a two stage process has been established that must be observed before final approval to conduct research in schools will be granted.

Sydney Catholic Schools reserves the right to accept or decline any research application at its own discretion, except in the case of Funding Agreement obligations.

Sydney Catholic Schools values your feedback. We encourage you to contact your local school in the first instance with any suggestions, compliments or complaints. If you would prefer to contact Sydney Catholic Schools directly, you can complete the form below.

For further information about our complaint handling process, please see the Resolution of Complaints Policy.
