Our school

Homebush State School is located within the bounds of Mackay Regional Council.

The original school structure was built in 1889 and serves a sugar farming community. More recently there is an ever increasing percentage of parents undertaking shift work for the mines as well as families moving out of Mackay to small acreage. The nearest town is Mackay, which is approximately 25 kilometres from the school. The school has an active Parents and Citizens' Association that has contributed enormously to the education of Homebush State School students.

The school currently operates with three full time teachers. The enrolment of 57 children are taught in three multi-age settings compromising of prep/year 1, years 2/3  and years 4-6. The personnel working at the school include a teaching principal, two classroom teachers, physical education teacher (part time), ICIS teacher (part time) four teacher aides, an administrative officer and a cleaner.
