Isis school to lose $70,000 in fund­ing

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
