Get educated in Queensland

Taking out a mortgage refinance in order to buy in Queensland could prove to be beneficial, given a recent announcement from Minster for Education, Training and Employment John-Paul Langbroek.

Principals of state schools across the Sunshine State will appreciate the reduction of "administrative burden[s]" they are currently subjected to.

However, it's not just those running schools that will be at an advantage. Students will also benefit from the move, as there will be more opportunities for contact, given the reduction in administrative tasks.

"The Newman government is slashing red tape so principals can focus on what's really important - improving student outcomes and creating a brighter future for them and their families," Mr Langbroek explained in a June 20 media release.

The move comes in the form of a Red Tape Reduction booklet, that lists a number of actions principals can work towards. Some actions have already been completed, Mr Langbroek explained.

"Examples of completed actions include less administration involved in the sale of low-cost assets and fewer paperwork approvals for school excursions," he said.

For people with a fixed home loan who have children, proximity to quality education is often a key factor in the home buying process. For some, a quality local school is a must, while others will be happy for their children to travel some distance provided local transport links are reliable and frequent.

Families with Queensland property may be reassured by this latest announcement, which benefits students, teachers and principals alike.

Students in the Sunshine State study towards their Queensland Certificate of Education, which can be awarded following the completion of years one through to 12 in the state's schooling system.

A range of subjects are taught, including English, mathematics, science, technology, art, languages, personal development, health and physical and education and studies of society and the environment.
