Isis school to lose $70,000 in funding
CHILDERS’ Isis District State High will see its funding drop nearly $70,000 in the second round of the Queensland Government literacy and numeracy funding program.
But despite the drop, the school remains one of the region’s four biggest recipients of funding from the program.
Three Bundaberg state high schools will each receive about 200% more funding in the second round of the program.
After receiving about $80,000 this year, Bundaberg North State High will get $249,787 in 2015.
Kepnock State High will receive $426,536, an extra $283,436 on this year, and Bundaberg State High will get $439,942 in 2015, $289,655 more than this year.
Queensland Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek said the money was being invested through the Federal Government’s students first initiative.
“Queensland is the only state or territory in Australia that is giving every single cent of this funding directly to schools,” Mr Langbroek said.
Goodwood State School will receive $19,070, up from $16,586 last year.
Oakwood State School will receive $22,450, up from $19,744.
Gooburrum State School will receive $26,690, up from $18,207.
