The livelihoods of more than 33,000 Queenslanders and almost $5 billion worth of economic activity rely on a strong and growing independent schooling sector.
These are among the headline findings of a comprehensive examination of the contribution of Queensland’s more than 200 independent schools to the economy.
In 2020, Independent Schools Queensland commissioned economic analysts, AEC Group, to quantify the sector’s contribution to the Queensland economy and to the local economies in which they operate. The report, which is based on the latest available 2017-18 sector data, updates modelling undertaken for the first time in 2016 using 2013-14 data.
St Paul’s has again been nominated as a finalist in the 2019 Australian Education Awards in the Primary School of the Year [non-government] category. Once again this is an affirmation of the incredible holistic living, learning and growing philosophy which happens across our school every day. This nomination isn’t about one person, one program or one particular group of students, but it is a reflection and affirmation of who we are as a learning community in Caboolture. The awards event will take place in Sydney later this year.
