Position Information

Queanbeyan Public School, established in 1864, is the most historic school in Queanbeyan. The school community is diverse, welcoming students from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds.

The school has a deep commitment to Aboriginal Education including ongoing reconciliation actions. It maintains a collaborative partnership with the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group and consults with the Aboriginal community.

We currently have an enrolment of 530 students. Our staff includes over 50 (full time equivalent) teachers and support staff.

The staff have a diversity of skills and experiences with a commitment to ongoing evidence based professional learning. We strive for excellence in teaching that provides a consistent, relevant, challenging and diverse curriculum for all learners. The Coolamon is representative of the school's connection with the Ngunnawal people. The Coolamon was traditionally used to carry most precious possessions, including infants. It is symbolic of the school's role in caring for and carrying the aspirations of each child in the school community. Student wellbeing is a priority and we ensure that every student is known, valued and cared for with targeted initiatives to achieve this outcome. Queanbeyan Public School is dynamic and diverse, serving a culturally and linguistically diverse community with 32% of students from NESB from approximately 32 countries.

Queanbeyan Public School and its community form a strong partnership. The school has a partnership with a "Schools as Community Centres" facility that is sited on school grounds. The Parents and Citizens association is a very supportive and active part of the school community. Parents and teachers work together to support students to be responsible, respectful and resilient individuals.
