It is my pleasure to welcome you and your family to Karara State School. Our school offers learning programs from Kindergarten to Year 6. We are a short 30min drive from Warwick or 35mins from Inglewood. We are situated just off the Cunningham Highway in Karara. At our school we promote kindness, tolerance and inclusive education. Building on our students strengths to ensure they have the skills to succeed in life.
We have a phenomenal teacher to student ratio and are able to cater to each student individually. We believe that our small school has the edge because we have the opportunity to engage in a full curriculum and provide extra learning opportunities including the sporting schools program, IMPACT program, French language program ELLA and gardening in our beautiful grounds. We support our students through love and logic, our teachers love teaching and our students love learning.
We believe strongly in developing each individual child to his/her full potential – be it academically, physically, socially, emotionally, culturally or creatively. By our comprehensive knowledge of each child, we endeavour to accomplish this end without imposing unrealistic expectations upon the learner.
Our school is central to the community of Karara and we engage with our residents in the local area, the Rural Fire Service, Hall committee and Karara Tavern and Motel regularly. We also have an active P&C and offer individual student and family support services. We actively encourage school partnerships and work in support of our community.
