Additional Government data, first collected in the 2014 school year, showed Gympie state schools had a collective attendance rate of 90.2 per cent as at October of this year - the region's lowest return since 2014 (90.3 per cent).

This year's figure dropped off by 0.7 per cent on last year's result as 14 Gympie LGA schools returned their lowest rate in five years.

Theebine State School had the lowest rate of any Gympie LGA school at 81.3 per cent, followed by Gympie Special School with 83.9 per cent and Gympie State High School on 85.8 per cent.

Widgee State School achieved their highest rate over the data collection period with a 94.5 per cent mark for 2018.

Kandanga State School had the next highest with 93.7 per cent, but that mark was also the school's lowest performance over the five years.

Wolvi and One Mile (93.6 per cent) followed, and Jones Hill (93.2) rounded out the top five, but they also had their worst statistical year since 2014.

James Nash State High School had the better performance of Gympie's state high schools with 89.8 per cent, but they narrowly avoided posting their own five-year low, which remains at 88.9 per cent in 2014.

NOTE: The average absences for each Gympie region state school are unofficial and subject to inaccuracies due to discrepancies. The averages are intended to give a general picture of each school's performance only.

My School enrolment data was only current up to 2017, and those numbers are noted for each school.
