Independent Public School 2015


The Minister for Education, Training and Employment, John-Paul Langbroek, has announced that our application for Independent Public School (IPS) status for 2015 was successful.

What does it mean to be an Independent Public School?

The Independent Public Schools initiative recognises the best decision-making often occurs at a local level through direct response to local community needs and aspirations.

By becoming an Independent Public School, Queensland principals, teachers, parents and local communities have greater control and ownership of their schools.

The Independent Public School initiative will provide opportunities for:

  • enhanced local governance

  • advancing innovation

  • locally-tailored workforce

  • financial flexibility

  • building for the future

  • public accountability, transparency and performance.
