Our school

Small school, big heart.

Halifax State School has a long and proud tradition of excellence in education. Over the last 126 years the school has seen many changes but as the world takes heed of the 21st century, so too does this little school. The same walls which were once witness to slate, ink wells and the dreaded supervisor inspections are now home to dynamic learning environments with devices and staff to support and encourage engagement. In the shadow of the old school building now sits modern facilities including a new tennis court/basketball court and fitness playground, while internally the building is almost unrecognisable. The computer lab and ipads allows students to access knowledge from far beyond the school gate and communicate around the world; the interactive whiteboards engage learners and generate excitement; and digital devices are integrated throughout learning experiences. All this is done with one purpose in mind – to enhance student learning outcomes.

However, there is one thing that has not changed at Halifax State School. The school still offers a quality education in a caring and supportive environment. Staff are committed to delivering learning experiences which cater for the individual, and provide skills and knowledge to become an active citizen. The community, and in particular P&C members, take every opportunity to support the students by holding fundraising events including markets and weekly raffles (at the commercial hotel – Halifax). From the moment you walk through the gates of the school you know you have come to a place which not only provides quality education, but cares.

It truly is a small school with a big heart.
