By the numbers: Each Bundy school's government spend

BUNDABERG North State High School had the highest government spend per student between 2015 and 2017 when compared to other schools in the area, new data reveals.

The data was presented in two categories: government funding per student and government capital expenditure, and total funding per student and total capital expenditure.

The figures showed the state and federal government forked out $16,260 per student at Bundaberg North State High during that two-year period.

The data also showed at private schools, where parents fees, government funding and other sources contributed to the student funding totals, St Luke's Anglican had a total funding amount of just over $18,000 per student, while Shalom College similarly had $18,237.

Government funding per student at St Luke's Anglican School between 2015 to 2017 was recorded at $11,222.

Shalom College's government funding per student was $13,476 during the same period.

Bundaberg North State School in the same period was found to have received $14,375 in total government funding per student.

But despite the funding, enrolments fell 13 and 6 per cent from 2013-2018 respectively for the school, to 351 students.

Bundaberg North State High School also recorded a drop to 706 students during the five-year period from 2013.

Shalom College's enrolments were recorded as growing 15 per cent during this period to 1379.

Between 2013-18, St Luke's Anglican School enrolments fell 14 per cent to 717 students.

The general fall in local school enrolments is something St Luke's Anglican School business manager David Reed said he'd observed across the region.

"Our data shows since 2013 there is an excess of 580 less students across all schools,” Mr Reed said.

"What that means, from census to census, (is) working families with young children are moving away from regions like Bundaberg, and that's a fact.

"St Luke's certainly has seen the effects on enrolments, like a lot of other schools have.”

Mr Reed said during the data recording period, Queensland schools had transitioned Year seven into secondary school, which could also "skew” growth percentages.

"Its a fact that hard-working parents are looking for work ... also Bundaberg had the floods during those years, so that is another factor when you look at those enrolment (figures) from 2013 to 2018 and that straddles how many of those families were affected by floods,” he said.

"It is a story for Bundaberg still recovering from significant floods which affected all schools.”

Mr Reed said St Luke's was expecting a rise in enrolments over the next two years.

"We are cheering on that revival, which is happening,” he said.
