Nestled among mature Jacaranda trees in the heart of the Boyne Valley, Ubobo State School offers a stimulating, challenging and supportive environment for students and community members to aspire to their individual potential. Established in 1927, our school grounds boast enough room for the most physical among us. There is a full size athletic track with designated throwing and jumping areas, 2 full size floodlit tennis courts, one of which is multi-functional and covered for summer use, and 2 covered play forts for younger students.
We have a number of learning areas which can comfortably accommodate up to 60 students. The original school building offers a double teaching space with an attached wet area, 2 administration offices, and a store room. The community room is a multi-purpose area used in a multitude of ways. It has a fully fitted kitchen and a serving hatch for tuckshop, the room is used as a classroom to run the school's Pre-Prep Program, as well as for hosting P&C social functions. Adjacent to the community room is a storage area, housing lunchtime play equipment. Our newest building is the Resource Centre. This multi-purpose building houses our extensive Library and an interactive teaching space. It has been furnished to encourage learning with colourful and ergonomic furniture, a large interactive whiteboard with integrated television and digital hard drive recorder, a Wii games console and wireless internet connectivity.
Ubobo is one of four small townships in the Boyne Valley and is situated 80klms south west of Gladstone. The school joins with Builyan and Nagoorin to form the Boyne Valley Cluster and comes together on a regular basis, providing students with the opportunity to learn and socialise with children of a similar age.
