Our school

Townsville South State School, located two kilometres from Townsville's CBD, has been offering a quality, small-school education since 1884. It offers both Preparatory and Primary education with a country feel, usually with six multi-age classes from Prep to Year 6, along with an after-school care program.

The school's central focus is on high standards of literacy and numeracy for all students and flexible classroom structures operate during reading, writing, spelling and maths lessons to respond to the different achievement levels of individual students.

The school has a vision of Learn, Play, Grow Together for every child and aims to develop a firm foundation of basic skills, knowledge and understanding, together with a positive attitude to learning in each student, so that these can be applied both within the school context and beyond. Student achievement and development is reported frequently to students through feedback and to parents regularly or on request.

Leadership, participation and citizenship within the school community are given high priority and organised into supported programs that develop positive relationships amongst all members of the school community.

Strong partnerships exist between the school and home to ensure a successful and positive educational journey for all children. The Parents & Citizen Association actively supports school and student-oriented activities and parent/community involvement is welcomed, encouraged and sought. The school values each child's welfare and learning and every individual child's whole development within the educational setting is given paramount importance.
