Message from the Principal

Welcome to the official website for Chinchilla State School. Our school is a very vibrant and prosperous school which has been on quite a journey over recent years. Enrolments at Chinchilla State School have increased by approximately one hundred students over the last twelve months. On average, over recent years, our school has grown by one class each year.

Chinchilla State School has a diverse range of students and staff, having approximately 600 students and 70 staff. Our school has a strong focus on curriculum, paying particular attention to reading comprehension.


Our school values - Learning, Respect, Responsibility, Belonging and Safety - are paramount to student success. We are also a Positive Behaviour for Learning school, which means we can carefully and strategically monitor student behaviour and success, and we analyse school-wide trends, positively reinforce our values, expectations and supportive learning environment for all students.


Chinchilla State School has a very supportive Parent and Citizens Association, who proudly work alongside the school principal, staff and students. Our school vision statement is '​​​​​All children learning to the best of their abilities'".


Once again, I welcome you to Chinchilla State School, and I commend our school to you as we work together in partnership to ensure every child attends and is successful every day.
