State govt dishes out funds for schools

WARWICK State High School leads the district in literacy and numeracy funding with a whopping $296,925 injection coming next year.

The region will share in more than $2.5 million from the second round of the Queensland Government's Great Results Guarantee program.

The Great Results Guarantee is part of the Queensland Government's push to position students among the top performers in literacy and numeracy in Australia by 2020.

Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek said the state-wide investment had grown $52 million to $183 million next year.

"It has already empowered schools to put in place effective programs that drive lasting improvements and I have no doubt that we'll see this continue into the future," he said.

"It's about making sure that we can cater for the needs of Queensland students so they have every opportunity to succeed in life."

Dalveen, Karara, Murray's Bridge, Pilton, Pozieres, Ryeford and Tannymorel bottomed the list with only $5000 funding apiece.

A nationwide survey conducted in 2011 revealed about half of Australian aged between 15 and 74 had insufficient numeracy and literacy skills to properly cope in modern society.
