Our school

Welcome to the Mount Archer State School website. I am delighted that you have taken the time to explore the information we have posted here. Whether you are an existing family of our school community or you are looking for a school to enrol your child, I trust you will find the information you require.

Mount Archer State School is one of the largest state primary schools in Rockhampton. Our programs cater for students in prep and primary year levels.

Mount Archer has a great reputation across Rockhampton as being a school of choice where every child has opportunities to reach their full potential.  This can be attributed to a committed and professional staff, second to none. Our team includes teachers, teacher aides, administration, ancillary and specialist staff. Your child will have access to specialist teachers for physical education, music, library, Japanese and visiting instrumental music teachers. We also have a range of trained staff to support students including a support teacher for literacy and numeracy, special education teachers, a guidance officer and chaplain.

Our ambition is to provide learning experiences to develop our students’ intellect, talents and character. You will observe that we work hard at building a solid foundation for academic success.

Over time at our school you will notice a wide range of opportunities available to your child to extend their experiences and nurture their talents in many fields (sporting, cultural and academic). We also take seriously the part we play in building children’s character and therefore teach, model and expect responsible behaviour as outlined in our Responsible Behaviour Plan.

We are sure your child will enjoy the resources available on our campus that includes modern classrooms, a well appointed library, a new hall and a growing collection of technology tools to enhance their learning.

Mount Archer State School is a uniform school and to this end we encourage all our students to wear the full school uniform with pride. Further information on the school uniform and Responsible Behaviour Plan is available on this website.

I trust you and your child will find your association with our school a very positive one, with untold benefits now and into the future.
