The Queensland Government is committed to providing state schools with greater autonomy in decision-making and increased capacity to work in new ways to maximise learning outcomes. To that end, when Wellers Hill became an Independent Public School, a school council was invested to collaborate on strategic decision making.
Independent public schools (IPS) operate in line with the IPS Policy Framework
. The Policy Framework sets out the key features of the IPS initiative in Queensland and the system supports that enable it to deliver to its full potential.
