Burketown State School opened in 1888, and has developed strong traditions for academic, sporting and cultural achievement and a vibrant community spirit.

Our school prides itself on the benefits that come with students attending a smaller school underpinned by a dynamic learning environment that provides quality curriculum for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

We are committed to providing quality teaching and learning through explicitly teaching the Australia Curriculum and providing differentiated learning through the Gradual Release of Responsibility model.

We have dedicated and enthusiastic staff, committed to personalised education programs. Our staff is committed to providing students with learning opportunities in a safe, supportive and disciplined learning environment.

We have a wide network of support including guidance officer, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, physiotherapist, engagement support team and school nurse.

Modern curriculum activities are planned into daily and weekly lessons alongside English, Numeracy, Science, HASS and Physical Education. These specialised activities are either provided on campus or through distance education providers. Solid Pathways, ​Global Tropics Futures Project, Sphero Bolt, Robotic and Drone programming programs (STEM) and LOTE(Japanese) are just some of the amazing opportunities being provided to students.
