Quality learning with connections to friends and community

All class, less hassles

In the central west you’ll find quality learning in the classroom and plenty of time to spend with friends and exploring their safe communities.

We’ve got you covered from childcare through to high school in central west Queensland. In our larger towns you’ll find state and Catholic primary schools, with high schools going through to year 10, and some to year 12. The School of Distance Education is also available for those further afield or completing school by distance education.

Our kids are involved in school and club sports, with district sport networks helping expand competition and experience. There are plenty of opportunities to compete at district and state-levels with many of our kids growing further in their and representing the region in rugby league, swimming, netball, dance and cricket.


What’s it like?

Walking to school with friends and no crowded drop off at peak hour. More time for extra-curricular activities. More opportunities to be an active part of the school parent and friends community.

Class sizes in CWQ are smaller than across the states all while delivering inclusive, quality education, health and wellbeing, and student support. Classrooms are air-conditioned with modern facilities and well resourced.

$230 is the estimated average weekly centre-based childcare costs in CWQ, before any government subsidies. This compares with an estimated $299 per week in Brisbane.
