Student spend among lowest

A MELBOURNE school linked to the Church of Scientology spends among the lowest per student in Australia despite receiving thousands of dollars in government funding.

Yarralinda School in Mooroolbark has also come under fire for obscuring its affiliation with Scientology, in a flyer that spruiks the school as a ''no homework school''.

My School website reveals Yarralinda School spent $3727 per student in 2009, despite receiving $6171 per student in combined government funding and $4609 per student in fees.

Victoria's independent schools spend an average of $15,201 per student, while government schools spend an average $10,178 per student.

However, most of Yarralinda's income - $7765 per student - was allocated to paying off debts, according to My School.

A former board member at Yarralinda, Paul Schofield, who resigned in 2009, alleged the school's debt repayments were so high because the school had taken out a mortgage to lend money to the Church of Scientology for its headquarters in Ascot Vale.

''I was livid the school had been left with this debt in order to fund the Scientology building,'' he said.

The Australian Education Union called on the federal government to investigate the use of government funding.

''The government is providing recurrent funding for very specific purposes, and it appears this funding is not being used for the purpose of education,'' president Angelo Gavrielatos said.

Yarralinda principal Christel Duffy refused to comment on why the school's spending per student was so low.

''Any debt the school has is directly in relation to the school and there is no debt in relation to the Church of Scientology,'' she said.

Ms Duffy said the school used Applied Scholastics teaching materials based on the works of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, who died in 1986. Its patron is Scientologist Kate Ceberano.

''We do not teach any religion at Yarralinda School nor do we attempt to ask any children or their parents to join or study any religion,'' Ms Duffy said.

She said the school's promotional flyer included a logo indicating it is part of the Applied Scholastics network.

Mr Schofield said Applied Scholastics was a ''Scientology front group''.

''The name of Ron Hubbard and Scientology is absolute poison [so it is] policy to say the school has nothing to do with Scientology, which is absolute crap.''

In its promotional flyer, titled ''Local kids love no-homework school!'', Yarralinda promotes its ''official no homework policy'', its ''traditional phonics-based teaching methods'' and its ''highly personalised learning programs''.

Independent senator Nick Xenophon, who has pushed for Scientology's tax-free status to be scrapped, condemned the lack of disclosure on the flyer, questioning what the Church of Scientology has to hide from parents.

''Will federal funds in effect be used to recruit new members to the Church of Scientology, which has got a shocking record of harming individuals who get caught up in its web?'' the senator asked.

A spokesman for Schools Minister Peter Garrett said: "A full briefing on these matters has been requested from the department.''

This is fantastic, great job Paul and Mr Peter Garratt...

We were in the SO with Crystal Duffy and her husband Bob. Good people both trained course sups so Crystal would know that she was lying.

The schools follow the ethics tech, having kids write up OW's, they do the kids comm course. We know because we ran the farm school here in ACT back in 1998-2000, of course this may have changed since then but I doubt it. We were well aware of the Scientology section of the curriculum however this section is not mentioned when the schools (Yarralinda and Athena) put through their submission to the Board of Education.

Aw shucks, Emm - I'm getting embarrassed :redface:

The best part of this is watching the Co$ get :whipped: by a media here in Oz who smell the stories that are just oozing out from under OSA's "PR control."

For some reason, I'm the favoured go-to person for a quote or nine - I ain't complaining. :coolwink:

It's soooooo nice to think what effect all this "entheta" is having on the cult.:happydance:

Google will be their friend - anyone who takes the time will almost certainly come up with the media on Yarralinda that'll make 'em run a mile from those bat-shit crazy cultoids. :D

Australia-wide innoculation on all things Scientological is proceeding according to plan. :thumbsup:

All the scilons can do is look for more space-alien demons to exorcise in a pathetic attempt to become "cause" again. :roflmao:

It's how they explain their inabilities to conquer the universe.:hysterical:

They're not going to find too many suckers left for them to ensnare these days. :dieslaughing:

I hope it's soon Scooter.
I felt sick to my stomach to see people being sucked in to talk there today.

Well school numbers are going down again after they did go up last year so I'd say the truth is getting out about Yarralinda. :yes:

It'll be back below official minimum before too long then it'll quietly close. Or be noisily shut down - I'm hoping for the latter :happydance:

Inflow to any cult front-group these days is way down, thanks to the collective efforts of us and Anons combined.:thumbsup:

That's why I say the innoculation program is well underway and we'll have Oz scilon-proofed almost totally in the very near future.

The Hubbard virus will go the same way as polio has. :woohoo:
