Principal’s welcome

In recent years we have undergone a transformation of some of our facilities with a new state of the art toilet facility, large oval shed, new rainwater tanks, solar panel installation and a complete renovation of our Admin Block. As well as this, we now have a new multi age classroom from the Building the Education Revolution (BER).

I am proud to recommend our staff to you. Our teachers are dedicated, hard working and most importantly, caring professionals who ensure your child receives the highest quality educational experience we can offer. Our support staff team are second to none. They do an exceptional job in supporting students and teachers in our school and perform duties beyond their job description.

Homebush State School is a Band 5 school located in the Mackay/Whitsunday district of schools as part of the Central Queensland Region and is in a rural community 25 kilometres south-west of Mackay. The original school structure was built in 1889 and served 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 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 operates with three full time teachers and the current enrolment of 57 children are taught in three multi-grade settings compromising of Prep/Year 1, Year 2/3 and Years 4 to 7.

The personnel working at the school include a teaching principal, two classroom teachers, a physical education teacher (0.4), a Intercultural Investigations (ICIS) teacher (0.2), four teachers aides, one administrative officer and a cleaner.

We look forward to working with you and your child during your time at Homebush State School. We strongly value parent involvement in our school as we believe the team philosophy ensures success for every child. The interest shown by you in the school and your child's progress will assist us in providing the ideal educational and social climate to meet the needs of your child.

We are very proud of our school and the extensive curriculum we can offer. If you would like further information or have any questions, please contact the school office during working hours.

If you have any concerns or seek further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Regards

Megan McNamara
