Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Hamilton Island State School.

At Hamilton Island State School we pride ourselves on providing quality education for students from Prep to Year Six. Our school community is dedicated towards achieving excellent results for our students and school.  Teaching and learning encompasses the eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum:  English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Technology, Health and Physical Education, the Arts and Japanese.  Students are supported to reach and surpass school learning benchmarks through data informed teaching and learning inquiry cycles. 

We believe that our school community has a shared responsibility to maintain strong, positive relationships to support academically and socially competent students who are lifelong learners and custodians of the environment.  We hold high expectations for our students both in their school work and behavior through our climate of Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL).  These expectations are complemented by our school rules:  Be safe, Be responsible, Be respectful and Be a proud learner.  We call these 'The Hamilton Island Way'.  

We are a Reef Guardian school and take action to protect our unique island environment.  We reduce, reuse, recycle and embed the cross curriculum priority of Sustainability in our daily routines.  Our elective program provides students in Years 3-6 the opportunity to learn how to sail through Sailing Australia’s Tackers program. Our two house teams, The Humpbacks (red) and The Manta Rays (yellow), engage in swimming, athletics, cross country and spelling bee competitions throughout the year.  

Our student leadership program is well established. Our school captains are supported by house captains and vice-captains, allowing for our students to be part of fundraising initiatives at the local level and support a wide range of community events.

Our school is supported by volunteers through our active Parent and Citizens Association who provide our school with generous financial contributions that benefit all students and staff at our school.

We welcome you and look forward to your contributions to our great school.  Please navigate through our site and share in the great things that we are doing as a school.
