Our school

Kilcoy State School, established in 1892, is located in the northern section of the Somerset region in Queensland. It is located close to the centre of town in the heart of a rapidly changing rural area, with several established and budding industries. Kilcoy State School is a band 7 school with an enrolment of approximately 300 students from prep to year 6. At Kilcoy State School, there are currently 13 classroom teachers and a wide range of support personnel. We operate as a team to provide the best possible 21st century education and learning environment for our students. Positive relationships between staff and students are purposefully developed and maintained with enthusiasm and open friendliness.

Kilcoy State School has a tradition of academic excellence balanced with sporting, cultural and citizenship achievements. A clear focus in the school is providing a solid foundation in literacy and numeracy skills. Every classroom teacher explicitly teaches the Australian Curriculum content descriptors and differentiates for all individual learners so that each and every student can reach their maximum potential. Students reach their potential because teachers clearly articulate what is to be learnt and what they expect to see if a child has learnt it. Teachers set individual literacy and numeracy goals and track students’ progress by giving feedback to support student outcomes. We use the Curriculum into the Classroom unit plans for English, maths, science and history as a resource to teaching the Australian Curriculum. We use these materials because they support higher order thinking and the acquisition of what a student is expected to know and be able to do at their given year level across the nation.

Kilcoy State School promotes a green and healthy environment. The Language other than English (LOTE) undertaken in the school is Japanese. It is our aim to provide a study program that addresses the identified needs of our students. Support from the wider community is encouraged. There are a number of active parents who run the Parents and Citizens Association. The school vision statement is that Kilcoy State School will continue to be a high performing academic school that is caring, supportive and challenging. Every student will be offered the opportunity to thrive and participate fully in the learning process. The school will continue to take an active role in the community. As it grows and develops, Kilcoy State School will embrace innovation and creativity whilst maintaining its unique rural atmosphere. We will always strive for excellence in every area. The school offers outstanding sports, performing arts and reading programs and has recently introduced before school tutorials and a homework centre. Construction of a modern resource centre and multipurpose hall was completed in mid 2010. It now provides a wonderful learning environment for all of Kilcoy State School’s students and the community at large.

Please be aware that as of 2014 Kilcoy State School has an Enrolment Management Plan.
