Welcome to Calliope State School

Calliope State School strives to build positive relationships that value difference. We believe that education i​s a shared responsibility between school, families and the wider community. We value respectful, responsible and safe behaviour. We believe that everyone has the right to learn, be safe and respected, and have the responsibility to respect themselves, others and property.

We promote a safe and supportive environment that optimises student success and well-being through a Positive Behaviour for learning approach. We promote a spirit of fun, belonging and cooperation amongst students, staff, parents and the community. We aim to create an environment that encourages students to take pride in themselves and their school.

Calliope State School offers dynamic, 21st century learning and teaching experiences, in a rural setting with traditional values. The school caters for students from Prep to Year 6 and provides meaningful transition experiences both into Prep and beyond Year 6.


Our motto, 'Present Achievement, Future Success', reflects our belief that every student can achieve, every day, in every classroom, with the ultimate goal to become healthy, happy and productive citizens. Calliope State School students are Safe, Respectful and Responsible, and learn in a supportive learning environment.


The Calliope State School Special Education Program caters for students with disabilities.  All students are supported by a Guidance Officer, Chaplain and Support Teacher: Literacy and Numeracy and speech pathologist/therapist. A focus on literacy and numeracy is enhanced by digital learning experiences across a number of platforms. All classrooms are equipped with electronic whiteboards, computers and other digital learning tools to enhance teaching and learning.


Students participate in a wide range of intra- and inter-school sports, including rugby league, soccer, volleyball and softball, and are able to participate in the Instrumental Music program (Strings and Woodwind, Brass and Percussion) from Year 3. The school is well resourced with a modern Resource Centre, swimming pool (open to the wider community outside of school hours), two large ovals, and a Multipurpose Hall. In 2017 we moved into our new Administration and General Learning building which houses six classes and provides students with access to a dedicated Science Lab, Outdoor Learning Area, Art Space and Practical Learning Area including a kitchen. These recent facility improvements and development have been strategically designed to serve the Calliope community for many years to come.​​​​​​​​​
