Howard State School is set in a small friendly rural community about 20 minutes north of Maryborough, Qld. The school was established on the present site in 1884 when the Burrum Coal Mining Industry was at its prime. We have approximately 150 students enrolled from prep to year 6.
We currently have dedicated classroom teachers as well as experienced specialist teachers. We have an abundant amount of facilities with two football ovals, a multipurpose court, two shaded playgrounds, school pool, a laptop lab, school hall, and a creative STEAM maker space project room.
Our school is supported by an active P&C association that contributes to the wellbeing of our staff and students.
Our aim is for students to strive to shine in all areas of schooling whether it's academic, arts, sporting or social emotional areas. Our School Motto is 'Strive to Shine' and our three values are, Value our School, Value Yourself and Value Others.
We welcome you to Howard State School.
