Primary education provides a general elementary program lasting for 7 or 8 years until Year 6. Secondary education commences at Year 7, with students following a more comprehensive curriculum.

Usually primary and secondary schools are separate institutions, although in some country areas, district schools provide both levels of education. Senior secondary colleges and some government district high schools provide the final two years of government (non-compulsory) school education.

(a) Full-time students only.
(b) This is a measure of the total level of staff resources used. The full-time equivalent (FTE) of a full-time staff member is equal to 1.0. The FTE of a part-time staff member is calculated on the basis of the proportion of time spent on in-scope activities compared with that spent by a full-time staff member solely occupied by in-scope activities.
