Our school


Nestled in the heart of the Boyne Valley, Ubobo State School is a high performing and extremely well-resourced small, rural school. Established in 1927, Ubobo State School is steeped in history and features a fantastic main building of significant heritage value.

Student learning is of the highest priority at Ubobo, and consistently high student achievement is celebrated regularly. Attached to student achievement is excellent attendance and exemplary student behaviour. Much success is attributed to the long-serving and dedicated staff.

Ubobo State School is well supported with a Chaplaincy Service, an itinerant teacher to deliver Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) and Science, and the school also employs a second teacher to ensure high quality curriculum delivery to our Prep – Year 2 students. Ubobo State School’s Instrumental Music Program offers lessons in guitar and keyboards for all students from Prep - Year 6, with 100% uptake. A one-day-a-week Chaplaincy service offers students a great avenue for support with a meaningful program run throughout the year to build confident and leadership. Programs such as Before School Writing and Kilometre Club all add to the school experiences. Transitioning children into school is seen as vitally important, and Ubobo State School’s Pre-Prep Transition Program has proven to be most successful, run by school staff.

Ubobo’s facilities and resources are the envy of most schools across Queensland. Learning spaces are modern and have been renovated extensively in recent times to accentuate the heritage features of the main teaching building and to convert the interior into a modern and interactive space with quality technology. This includes wireless, finger-touch projectors, laptops and iPads for each student, and a 3-in-1 3D printer.

The Ubobo State School grounds offer students and the community impressive facilities with two flood-lit tennis courts, undercover and lit netball court, purpose-built long jump pits, two playgrounds, and an equipped kitchen and learning space for the Pre-Prep Transition Program. The 7 acre grounds are particularly well maintained and allow for the hosting of many events (Boyne Valley-Bororen Sports Day (4 schools), School and Port Curtis Cross Country carnival (40 schools), and is also utilised as a major part of the Elders Country Music Campout, hosting 50 marked campsites. With fantastic facilities, Ubobo State School is utilised for a weekly Boyne Valley Social Netball game and regular community tennis nights.

Clustering with neighbouring schools is vitally important for students and staff at our small, rural school. The school comes together with other schools regularly, providing students with the opportunity to learn and socialise with children of a similar age.​​
