Those looking to purchase real estate in Bulimba may be pleased to hear that Bulimba State School will have more freedom and opportunity thanks to a Newman Government initiative.
Bulimba State School is one of Queensland's 54 new Independent Public Schools which are able to operate with increased autonomy.
Minister for Education, Training and Employment John-Paul Langbroek said these 54 schools will be open to more feedback from parents, teachers and community members.
"Research shows that autonomy can improve school performance and student outcomes, which is why the Newman Government is investing $21 million in the Independent Public Schools initiative," Mr Langbroek said.
"By cutting red tape and removing layers of bureaucracy, school communities are empowered to make more decisions that impact directly on students' learning."
The initiative has already been trialled on 26 schools, all of which have noticed a marked improvement since the new approach began.
"The first 26 Independent Public Schools have led the way this year, showing great innovation in the way they are managing their resources and tailoring programs to meet the needs of their school communities," Mr Langbroek said.
He added that some schools have improved their academic, music and sporting programs, while others have developed new cultural initiatives to support students with English as a second language.
