Welcome to Parkhurst State School, a learning community recognised widely for its caring and supportive environment provided by a team of professional personnel working in partnership with our parents and wider community.
We aim to create and deliver an environment which is enthusiastic, challenging and supportive through a range of partnerships so all learners can reach their individual potential. We are respected across all sectors of education and the wider community for maintaining a consistent approach to academic, sporting and cultural excellence.
Our school is well resourced with consistent curriculum offerings focused on developing a range of knowledges and skills for the future. We’re situated on a campus of 3.5 hectares, with a spectacular school oval, grounds and playground facilities for all year levels. Learners also have access to a large Assembly Area (the ‘AA’), Multipurpose Court and our new state of the art teaching and learning facility, known as ‘Zone 21′.
In 2009, Parkhurst State School received the State Showcase Award for Excellence in Innovation for our use of ICTs within learning. In 2009, Parkhurst became a Promethean Centre of Excellence for our combined leadership in the use of interactive whiteboards and associated technologies within all classrooms and supporting schools across the Central Queensland and beyond.
In 2010, Parkhurst State School became a participant in the prestigious Australian Microsoft Innovative Schools Program. In 2011, our participation will extend internationally, becoming a Microsoft Worldwide Pathfinder School in recognition of our commitment to delivering a quality 21st century education for the range of contemporary learners.
