To the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the State of Victoria showeth that any reduction in Government funding of non-Government schools would seriously affect the quality of the educational services provided and cause financial hardship for many parents.

Your petitioners therefore pray that any change in the funding system for non- Government schools recognises the fundamental right of all children to an equitable share of Government funds for education.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
