Our School- Established in 1878 with rich traditions as our grounding we strive for positive and purposeful forward looking pathways.
Gowrie State School is a family friendly school with a wonderful community feel. Situated between Toowoomba and Oakey, just off the Warrego highway you will find our school nestled in the hills of Gowrie Junction. Being 2017 Champion School Garden winner at Carnival of Flowers time should indicate to you that we have pride in our teaching and learning environment.
We pride ourselves in providing a welcoming and enriching learning environment where our students strive and thrive. Our come from the surrounding area, including a variety of suburbs of Toowoomba and this adds a rich diversity to our school community and makes our partnerships more valued.
We have embedded a whole school approach to well-being and emotional resilience through You Can Do It, and an emotionally intelligent rich curriculum shaped by the Positive Growth Mindset framework. A commitment to knowing our students, planning and teaching for high expectations and investing in parent and community involvement has impacted improvements in student learning outcomes. We are well regarded by our neighbouring schools as a school with strong foundations and innovative thinking.
Our vision statement is more than a statement as it is enlivened every day in every class room. At Gowrie State School we will strive for at least one year’s growth for one year’s schooling for every student.
Welcome to our school and the Gowrie school community.
