Cannonvale State School

Cannonvale State School is located at Cannonvale in the beautiful Whitsunday region of North Queensland. We offer classes for students from Prep to Year 6.  

Members of our school community work closely together to provide a learning environment which is safe and supportive and in which children are able to reach their potential.  

Our school is well resourced with a 25 metre swimming pool, four tennis courts, a multi-purpose hall and Outside School Hours Care facilities directly opposite the school.  

Students have an opportunity to join in many extracurricular activities at the school including access to specialist swimming and tennis coaching, school choir, concert band, and other events such as musicals when they are scheduled.   

At Cannonvale State School our goal is to improve the learning outcomes of every student in our school so that they reach their full potential.  In 2018 we aim to get every student to at least a ‘C’ standard in all subjects and to have 50% of all students performing in the upper two bands in NAPLAN and 50% getting an A or B in English and Maths.  Our focus to achieve this will be on reading, writing (including spelling and punctuation and grammar), numeracy, differentiation, quality curriculum, explicit teaching, attendance and closing the gap. Please read our School Improvement Agenda (PDF, 1.8 MB) to see in more detail the strategies we will use to improve the learning outcomes of all of our students.

Cannonvale State School is a great school and you are most welcome here.
