IMPORTANT notice about ACES data and access

Access to maps and public data has been removed as new data has not been added yet. When updated, access will become available again. Registered users need to contact [email protected] or (02)9287-1541 to gain access to these historical datasets.

Maintaining data and maps in ACES has been provided by support from Catholic Education Commission, NSW (CECNSW) . On January 1 2018, CECNSW ceased and was replaced by Catholic Schools NSW Ltd. As a result, data and maps in ACES hasn't been updated with 2017 school data and 2016 Census data. CSNSW has decided to support the updating of the data and maps, but as no resources have been allocated, no timeframe for updating can be provided. Another impact is that if ACES has technical issues, ACES cannot be repaired at this time. CSNSW and NCEC will be working towards a more permanent and sustainable solution.

Please refer data queries or questions about this change to the National Catholic Education Commission.
