I did choose the most extreme example of low ses school. In comparison,Ive just checked the local public school, to which I would be zoned i I hadnt chosen private. They also receive total funding of $11,000 (10,850 being from the government and $150 parent contributions). My kids low fee peivate school also have $11,000 per child total funding ($8000 government and $3000 parent contributions). It just reaffirms for me personally that the 'resource' doesnt make the school.
I also checked the local public and private high school - both have $16,000 total funding per student. The private school receive $8000 government & $8,000 parent fees. The public school receive $15,600 government & $400 parent fees.

I don't think anyone is saying resources make a school. We know through research that the high fee schools are not performing better than their public counterparts so the notion more resources create a better school is simply not true.
I was outlining how our low SES school gets the same govt funding as the catholic school as goes the high schools.

For a government school to be getting that much funding (21k per student) must mean it is really low ses.
The school I work at has 29% indigenous students, 75% of students in the bottom quarter and we got just over $14k per student.
The point isn't how much Pymble ladies' college receive. They shouldn't be getting anything at all. Let's say if we average the fees from that school then it would be $20k. Multiply that by 2100 students and that is $42,000,000 a year in fees. A school should be able to manage on that annual income alone without over $8,000,000 in government funding. It's just ludicrous.
