Our school

Welcome to Frenchville State School, one of the most highly regarded schools in the Rockhampton area and within the Central Queensland Region. Our students, staff and parents are proud to contribute to the success of our progressive, dynamic school. We place a strong, united emphasis on nurturing traditional values alongside 21st century pedagogy.  The success of our school was verified through the school review process when our school's performance was measured against the National School Improvement Tool.  Frenchville's previous successes are also well-known. 

We were shortlisted in the State Showcase Excellence Awards in the category of 'academic success', one of only three schools in Queensland to be given this honour.  We were also named as being one of the highest performing schools in the state's teaching and learning audit, achieving three outstanding and four high ratings across the eight possible areas as celebrated in The Courier Mail.  Our innovative work with technology was recognised when Frenchville was chosen as one of only twenty Microsoft Partners in Learning Pilot Schools selected from across Australia in 2012. 

In 2013 we continued to ride this wave of success, with consistently high expectations and pedagogical reform resulting in Frenchville once again being shortlisted in the State Showcase Awards in the category of 'Excellence in the Early and Primary Years category', one of only three schools in the State recognised at the  finals.  Frenchville was also one of the first schools in the State to undertake the Discipline Audit, a process in which auditors visit the school to examine school culture and the school processes which are enacted to achieve high expectations of student behaviour across the school campus.  Frenchville's results were outstanding, resulting in several commendations from the Audit Team.   

We have continued to grow our innovative work in the technology space, establishing a BYOX (Bring your own device) program, embracing technology through personalised learning devices.  We are also proud to be one of few schools in Central Queensland hosting a MakerSpace, an innovative design space which encourages computational thinking and coding.  In addition, Frenchville is an Entrepreneurial School of Tomorrow, encouraging students to design new innovations and to work in teams.

Enrolments have rapidly risen on the back of this success,  with Frenchville now providing an educational service to over 1000 students.   Despite our size, we pride ourselves on the family atmosphere within our school.  Our students are friendly, encouraging and proud of the school they attend.   

Our highly skilled and dedicated administration team, teaching and ancillary staff team look forward to working with you and your family to achieve the high levels of academic, social, sporting and cultural excellence for which Frenchville is renowned. We look forward to welcoming you into our Frenchville family in 2017.
