Caboolture region schools share in massive funding boost

By Jason Dunne

TEN schools in the local area will be better off following the announcement of a new education program, Great Results Guarantee.  Including Top Funding in Burpengary

Member for Morayfield Darren Grimwade said it was part of the Newman Government’s $131 million commitment to boost student outcomes in Queensland state schools by focusing on the early years.

“Everything the Newman Government does in education is focused on achieving better student outcomes,” he said.

“And this announcement delivers on our commitment to revitalise frontline services as promised at the election.

“We want every Queenslander to enjoy a quality education experience so that they are well equipped to enter further education, training and employment.

“This is about investing in our future, our children, and ensuring that Queensland remains a great state with great opportunity for generations to come.”

Mr Grimwade said the Great Results Guarantee would see the majority of funding targeted at the early years of school, which research showed was the most vital time in a child’s learning.

He said principals, in consultation with their school communities, would develop an agreement which would be entered into with the director general of the Department of Education, Training and Employment.

“We want parents and carers to be part of this process and set their expectations for what they want their children to achieve,” Mr Grimwade said.

Burpengary State School principal Brad Fox and P&C president Lyn Roberts have welcomed the State Government’s announcement.

“This grant enables our school to deliver extra innovative programs to support the learning of the full spectrum of student abilities,” Mr Fox said.

“The fact that the Great Results Guarantee enables Burpengary State School to respond to our students’ individual needs is an outstanding feature of this new announcement,” Mrs Roberts said.

“We have a passion for ensuring that every child receives the very best education and we are excited by the prospect of complementing and value-adding to the great work we already display every single day, with a well-funded innovation that will help our children flourish,” Mr Fox said.

Mr Grimwade said school communities would now have control over specific target funding that would make a difference to kids’ learning outcomes and ensure that no child was left behind.

“Parents and teachers have been telling me for some time that a plan needs to be put into place where future funding increases in education are monitored with an outcome focus. This Great Results Guarantee does exactly that,” he said.

The Pumicestone electorate’s education sector is also celebrating, with member Lisa France’s announcement of $1.7m in funding.

Mrs France said the allocation brought the Pumicestone electorate education funding to $14.7m over the past 22 months.

Caboolture East State School principal Julieanne Wilson was also “ecstatic” about the funding announcement.
