Principal’s welcome

Thank you for visiting our website.

As the principal of Balaclava State School I believe that strong relationships between school, home and the wider community are paramount to the success in learning for all students.

Our commitment at Balaclava is to create a learning environment in which each child can thrive and become an independent, creative and connected learner. It is through these solid foundations that unlimited potentials will emerge.

Balaclava State School provides an education that prepares our students for life. We are a community of learners, committed to innovation and led by a united vision for professional excellence.

At Balaclava we offer a distinctive learning environment. We believe in engaging children in learning experiences that foster their independence, creativity and the connectedness needed in today's world and our global future.

We recognise the individuality and varied abilities of our students and provide every opportunity for them to find their passion, take risks, strive to improve, succeed and learn from any set-backs.

Balaclava State School is committed to the Far North Queensland (FNQ) region of the Department of Education service commitment to students. This service commitment (shown below) meets the training and skilling needs of population, industries, and communities in FNQ.

100% of students in state schools achieve the service commitment to gain:

  • an OP and enter university
  • a clear vet pathway to employment
  • paid employment of 25+ hours/week
  • alternative pathways for some students with special needs.
