To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that every child in Australia is entitled to government financial support for their education whether they attend government schools or non-government schools.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that urgent consideration be given to a favourable decision for the continuation of Federal Government per capita grants payable in respect of all children in non-government schools at a rate calculated as a percentage of Government Standard Costs at a level not less than that prevailing in 1983.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
