Our school

Location

Thallon State School is a small dynamic two-teacher rural primary school situated 78 kilometres south of st george in the balonne cluster. Thallon State School shares a long-standing partnership and many shared activities with the townships of Thallon and Daymar, surrounding properties and the border community of Mungindi. It also has strong relationships with its cluster of schools including Bollon, Hebel, Dirranbandi, Begonia and St George. The collegiality of the cluster leads to many and varied opportunities for Thallon students.

The students of this wheat/sheep/cattle/cotton community come from varied socio-economic backgrounds and cultures and there is a small number of students with an indigenous background. The school has a fairly constant enrolment of approximately 40 children from preps to year 7 and is keenly supported by an active and interested parent community.

Curriculum

A full curriculum is offered and children are taught in two multi-aged groups with all their needs amply catered for. The school is well-provided for with music, hpe, instrumental music, learning support, special needs and chaplaincy all visiting regularly. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is a huge focus complete with an ICT teacher and a well-equipped computer lab. Individual needs are met by a constant and dedicated staff with everyone taking ownership of making Thallon school the very best it can be.

The Thallon State School way is to be at school every day, always do your best, live and learn together, be safe, responsible, respectful and an active learner.
