Why choose our school?

Boyne Island State School is now an Independant Public School.

The changes associated with being an IPS are:

1)     Influence over the selection and mix of staffing – (already a successful outcome starting the year with personnel the school had some say in selecting)
2)     Resourcing - $50 000 already banked and another $50 000 coming this year. Awaiting School Council to inform on its allocation.
3)     Governance – A School Council will be formed with input from parents, staff and co-opted people who will bring a skill base to the strategic direction of the school. The school should become ‘owned’ and directed by our community.
4)     Innovation – the freedom to try new things or say no to the things that impede our core business.
If the home-school partnership is strong and we trust the endeavours of the school, the positive attitudes to learning will be crucially formed in our students.
