Welcome to Magnetic Island State School

Principal’s Message
Welcome to Yunbenun, the traditional country of the Wulgurukaba people. I respectfully acknowledge the traditional owners of this land where our school community gathers to learn and to play. I pay my respects to the Wulgurukaba people, their elders past, present and to the emerging elders of the future for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and the hopes of Aboriginal Australia. It is my hope that we continue to honour and respect the traditions of Magnetic Island’s cultural heritage.
 
Our school is uniquely situated within the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park with an extraordinary landscape of rocky terrain and giant boulders, covered with eucalypt woodlands and majestic hoop pines. We are a tropical island paradise surrounded by secluded bays and golden beaches. With 23 beaches and bays and just a 20-minute ferry ride from Townsville, Magnetic Island has the natural beauty and serenity of an untouched paradise within a thriving community. Over two-thirds of Magnetic Island is classified as National Park, providing a haven for native wildlife including rock wallabies, koalas, possums and more than 100 different bird species.
 
At Magnetic Island State School, we believe that all students should have access to the best educational opportunities and outcomes possible. We strive to create a culture of engaging learning that improves wellbeing and achievement, values diversity and responds to student needs and interests. We have high expectations and celebrate successes with the whole school community. We acknowledge the importance of partnerships between parents and carers, communities and schools to promote student learning and success.
 
I welcome you and your family to our school.
