Eungella State School is a multi-age school of two classes set in the rainforest in Eungella National Park, an hour west of Mackay. The atmosphere is friendly and family oriented. The school population varies between 45 and 55.
Having healthy bodies and minds is an important aspect of school life. Children participate in daily brain gym and challenges such as Jump Rope for Heart. In 2011, the school became a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden School, which means that children learn to grow, harvest, prepare and share delicious healthy food.
Eungella State School has an extensive environmental program which encourages students to learn, through hands-on activities, to be responsible for its protection.
The School community participates actively in the life of the local township involving parents and the wider community. A free community newsletter is produced each fortnight by the senior students and staff of the school.
The learning community at Eungella State School is a happy and healthy one where each child is important.
