Subjects and programs


Kids matter to families, to schools and to the community. These are the groups that KidsMatter Primary aims to bring together to improve children’s mental health.
Good mental health is vital for learning and life. Children who are mentally healthy are better able to meet life’s challenges. They also learn better and have stronger relationships with school staff, family members and peers.

Schoolyard Blitz

Our Schoolyard Blitz is having positive results around the school. Many of the gardens have been weeded, planted out and mulched. Our garden shed is looking amazing! We would like to thank Angela Horne and the Neucom family for their kind donations of potting mix. We would also like to thank Angela Horne and Angie Malone for their time spent weeding and cleaning up the gardens. A special thanks must also go to Yvonne Condrick who has given up her time to help us create an inviting school environment.

If you are able to donate items such as outdoor plants suitable for either pots or in the ground, seedlings, cuttings, pots (any size), mulch, potting mix, garden ornaments, gum boots, old work boots and garden art, the Year 5 class would be most appreciative. Your time and effort in helping to keep our gardens in top condition would also be appreciated.




Scientists in Schools

Each term selected students in Year 5 and 6 have the opportunity to partake in the Scientist in Schools program with Dr. Steven Goh from the University of Southern Queensland.


Students learn basic robotics and engineering skills.



Story Time

We would like to invite any parents, grandparents or community members to come to our school library to read to a group of our students. Come and share your favourite picture book with us, or choose a book from our library shelves to read and enjoy.

Please contact the school to arrange a date that is suitable. Spread the word around the community. Help us to encourage our students to read and enjoy books.
