Principal's Welcome

Dalby State School, also known locally as Dalby Central, is a school rich in history and it is one of the oldest public schools in Queensland. Our school celebrates the integral role of parents, staff and the wider community whom all play a role in promoting a safe, intentionally inviting learning environment that provides quality education for students. Our focus is to provide curriculum programs that range from academic, sport and music. Classes are realigned each year to cater for all children.

This well-established school offers a wide variety of learning experiences for every child, valuing and encouraging individual, team, class and whole-school efforts. School life at Dalby State School is underpinned by the values of SAFETY, RESPECT and LEARNING. Our School Positive Behaviour of Learning plays a significant part in creating a safe supportive environment as well as establishing expectations of how all stake holders behave at our schools. Our values are taught in the classroom and at Whole school parade.

Our school is progressive, busy and vibrant as we work towards supporting every child and build positive relationships with students and parents. Innovative programs such as Lift and Lift Off have enhanced early transition. The Ex​cellence in Music Program has supported all students as well as our upper 2 Bands online programs. This year’s introduction of Bring Your Own laptop classes (BYOL) has enhanced online learning at Dalby State School.

Dalby State School is a learning organisation in which “shared leadership is the business of everyone”. This belief has trickled down from administration to our teaching staff, non-teaching staff and over to our students. This belief will enable high performance and sustainability of an organisation that empowers students, staff and parents.

Our approach at Dalby State School is to work collaboratively as a team to deliver successful outcomes for our students. Most importantly, it is about ensuring that our mindset develops internal conditions to maximise learning. We continue to monitor and evaluate what we do at our school, and know the jobs that need to be done and to ensure the jobs are done. This all leads to a high performing school which is visionary, data based driven and people powered.

"Every student in every classroom is learning and achieving."
