DEEWR have sent me a "School Funding Forum - Information pack" email 
with 7.4 Mbytes of attachments. The attachments are PDF copies of 
various documents about the school funding report. These documents are 
available on the web and all the Department needed to have done was 
include a link to them. As a result the message is a thousand times 
larger than it need be.

Hopefully administration of any new school funding program will be more 
efficient than this. If this was one of my students, they would be 
getting a "Fail". ;-)
