Our high school gets an A

THE fact Gympie schools continue to the lead Queensland in secondary education is positive news for the Gympie region.

All our high schools, both private and state, work hard to provide quality education for their students. But Gympie State High School's work to facilitate the online agricultural course is a masterstroke.

The course makes it easier for our young people to pursue a rural career and, listening to the students, makes learning a lot more fun and rewarding.

Gympie High is building a reputation for thinking outside the box when it comes to education. Their class teaching computer game-making skills to students was another state first.

The best bit about the course is it allows students to continue ag studies even after they have left school.
