Burpengary State School

A warm welcome is extended to you and your family from the Burpengary State School community. Our school has had a tradition of academic excellence since 1876. We work hard to ensure that we are the school of first choice for our local community. We have been an accredited International school for overseas students studying in Australia for over eight years.

At Burpengary, we work together to ensure a safe and productive learning environment. Our student-centred learning approach supports all students to excel and achieve to their full potential. Our school hosts an on-site English as a Second Language/Dialect program where trained educators support students in their learning of English. We have a range of extra-curricular activities in the areas of the Arts, sport and technology.

Burpengary State School values diversity and a global education for all children. I look forward to partnering with you over the coming years to enhance the learning for your child.
