Our school

Homebush State School is located within the bounds of Mackay Regional Council. The original school structure was built in 1889 to serve a sugar growing community. More recently it has served farming families and those employed in the mining industry as well as many who work in town but enjoy a rural lifestyle. The nearest city 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. It also has a Student Council which provides our students with leadership opportunities and the chance to have a say in the running of our school. 

We are staffed by three full time and two part time teachers, four teacher aides, an administration officer, cleaner and groundsperson. The enrolment of 45 children are taught in three multi-age settings compromising of prep/year 1, years 2/3/4  and years 5/6. All of our staff are caring and experienced and our class sizes average just 15 students.
