Mission and values

Jundah State School is located in the Central Queensland Region and services the community of Jundah and adjacent properties.   It is a coeducational school and the total enrolment for 2013 is 8 with students ranging from Year 1 to Year 7.

The community consists of the administration centre of the Barcoo Shire with most community members employed by the Council. There are a few itinerants including the teacher, police and hospital sister. The P&C Association are very active and there has been an increasing interest in School Support from  community members.

The school offers a curriculum program ranging from  Prep to Year 7 with a heavy focus on Literacy and Numeracy evident in all Key Learning Areas. Daily Smart Moves are an integrated part of our curriculum along with Languages Other Than English (LOTE - French) for Year 6 and 7, Library Skills, Health and Physical Education and Music.  We have developed a whole school focus on students being in class, on task and learning and 'explicit teaching' in response to test, school data and program analysis.  Students are the central focus of our planning, teaching and learning here at Jundah State School.  Teachers work hard to develop an understanding of students learning needs and abilities and develop programs to further develop their learning capabilities.

Jundah State School  is part of  two clusters of Small Schools one named  ‘The Outback Advantage’, which includes all small schools in the Longreach area and the 'Barcoo Cluster' a small cluster consisting of Jundah, and our neighbouring schools Stonehenge and Windorah.   In both clusters we strive to collaboratively design and implement units to deliver quality programs with a deliberate focus on the practise of quality teaching...

The student community consist of students whose interests are closely related to their environment. Their abilities vary but they are all motivated with several showing a high level of academic ability.

Particular features of the school include two buildings one is currently used as a classroom and office and the other as a Computer Lab and Library with an additional room underneath used as an Art Room / Science Room. There a two covered play areas with climbing equipment and a large covered marked court for a variety of sports ie soccer, netball etc.

At Jundah State School, we believe:

  • that all students learn, despite their differences, in an environment that encourages mutual respect and commitment to work
  • that education is a partnership between school, home and the wider community, that meets the needs of all stakeholders
  • in providing a curriculum that will equip all students for a life of learning
  • in responding positively to the challenges presented by an ever changing society
  • in the role of public education and the uniqueness of our school
  • in fostering good citizenship and ethical behaviour
