Principal's welcome

The selection of the correct primary school is one of the most difficult and important decisions that a parent can make. It is widely recognised that a sound education is the foundation for future success.

Greenlands State School has an impressive reputation for combining innovative teaching methods with a caring approach and up to date technology to provide students with a great start to lifelong learning.

Situated on the Texas Road, approximately 12 kilometres West of Stanthorpe, the school was opened on this site on 3 November, 1924 and caters for children from both urban and rural properties. It draws enrolments from a wide variety of areas within the Granite Belt and Traprock districts.

Learning takes place in a self-disciplined, small school environment that encourages children to reach their potential. Our individualised programmes are a feature of the balanced curriculum offered by Greenlands State School.

Visitors to this highly regarded school are amazed at the quality of work produced by students and the range of educational activities available to them.

Thanks to our supportive school community, our students participate in a wide variety of educational opportunities. Such activities include extra curricular programmes (e.g. cooking, camps, arts performances), our technology programme with an approximate ratio of one computer for every three students, free swimming lessons and all student materials provided by the school.

Our school provides a range of personnel to create the ideal environment for students to reach their potential.
