Why choose our school?

Blackwater State School offers a unique learning environment with a combination of small classes operating in large, open, air-conditioned classrooms. Our school grounds are well maintained and our beautiful outdoor areas are respected by all students.

At Blackwater State School, we provide quality learning experiences in a safe, caring and supportive environment. We are committed to achieving the best educational outcomes for every student in our school. Our experienced staff successfully create friendly, stimulating and engaging learning environments for all students by leading the way in curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.

We lead our students through the following four values – respect, responsibility, effort and safety. Our responsible code of school behaviour contains a behaviour matrix complete with positive rules relating to various school settings. All students and classes are exposed to ongoing and explicit teaching of positive rules contained within the behaviour matrix. We expect students to display excellent behaviour and we regularly acknowledge students who display exemplary behaviour.

Students at Blackwater State School are offered a rich variety of academic, cultural, sporting, citizenship and social activities. Participation in such activities enhances student confidence, builds resilience and develops skills such as teamwork – all vital qualities if students are to maximise life’s opportunities.
