Principal’s welcome


I am the proud Principal of Nanango State High School. Our school is a medium sized rural school of about 530 students. We pride ourselves on achieving great outcomes for all students across all grades. Our school focus is every student achieving to their full potential. The school motto revolves around the concept of ‘Accepting the Challenge’.
Our school is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) School and works on four key values. These values are Respect, Responsibility, Safety and Effort. The school acknowledges positive behaviour through a key card and rewards system. The school also strongly advocates the ‘everyday counts’ philosophy and seeks to have a minimum of 90% student attendance.
We continue to achieve outstanding results in Nanango across a wide range of activities and programs. Some brief samples of these results are:
  • 80% of students are achieving a C standard or better in English and 87% in Maths.
  • Comparable and above in comparison to like schools in all areas of NAPLAN for Years 7 & 9.
  • 83% of students achieved an OP between 1 and 15 in 2017.
  • 5 students completed a School Based Traineeship (SAT) in 2017.
  • 100% of Year 12 students received a QCE or QCIA in 2017.
  • Whole school attendance of 89% in 2017.
  • Staff attendance of 98% in 2017.
There are several key groups operating in the school including the Senior and Junior Outcomes Team, PBL, Attendance, Curriculum and Workplace, Health and Safety.
The three target priorities for 2018 are:
  • A minimum of 90% attendance for all students
  • 90% of students to receive at least a C in English, Maths, and Science.
  • 100% of students receive a QCE, QCIA, complete a school based traineeship or be awarded a VET certificate.
Nanango State High School has a proud tradition of creating and developing programs to cater for the needs of all students. Please talk to us about a program to suit the individual needs of your child.
