Principal’s welcome


​It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Northgate State School. 

Northgate State School provides a quality education in a caring and supportive environment. With a strong focus on the basics of literacy and numeracy, combined with the most up to date and professional knowledge, our aim is to provide an engaging and relevant curriculum which prepares our students, not only for their years ahead of schooling but for their future. 

With an enrolment of 34​​0 students, our school is large enough to ensure that we have the resources and facilities to cater for the learning needs of our students, but we are small enough that we are able to provide a family atmosphere and care for the individual - a personalised approach. 

We are committed to ensuring that our students are provided with a broad range of learning opportunities, which not only engage them but also challenge them to achieve their ‘personal best’. We understand that through supporting the development of the whole child, this allows the children to develop the skills and understandings that will enable them to be successful and productive learners within not only our school, but also the wider community and beyond. 

Our staff, a team of dedicated professionals, is committed to providing quality teaching practices for each student to work to the best of his or her ability, to strive to reach their potential. They take an interest in all students and enjoy tracking the students’ achievements beyond the primary years. Our parents, too, are supportive and equally proud of ‘their’ school and our children’s achievements. The hardworking Parents and Citizen’s Association work collaboratively with the school, to help achieve common goals. 

Our school offers quality facilities, with all classrooms refurbished and air conditioned to allow the students to learn in a comfortable setting. Interactive projectors are installed in every classroom, integral to 21st Century learning. We are also a trial school for the National Broadband Network project. 

Northgate State School is situated in a unique and idyllic setting, at the end of a quiet street, with the vast land encompassing generous ovals and playground facilities, backing onto a nature reserve. Situated just off Melton Rd, in the suburb of Nundah, you will find our boutique school and understand why we consider Northgate State School is Nundah’s best kept secret. 

We welcome prospective parents, students and community members, past and present to see our students’ learning in action. Come for a visit and get to know us. You won’t be disappointed!
