Our school

Welcome to Maleny State School, the school of choice for countless generations of local families on the Range. With an enrolment of 391 students we are just the perfect size. This year our school celebrated 100 years of educational excellence and tradition in Maleny, proudly welcoming back over a 1000 past students, staff and community members. As a new principal to Maleny I was overwhelmed to see so many people return from all around the globe with the common theme being that their school days in Maleny were, 'the best days of their lives'.

At Maleny we value family ideals and strive to create a warm, supportive, school climate that promotes a sense of belonging and encourages students to be motivated self-regulated learners.  We recognise that education of the whole child is essential and that as learners children are at all different stages. Our students perform well academically and thrive in our extension GEMS Program that stimulates and challenges children to be the best they can in writing, maths, science and art. Our vision is to ensure all children are connected learners and creative leaders.

We boast a highly committed and skilful staff with a passion for ensuring optimal learning outcomes for our students. This combined with our highly supportive P&C, and local community enables us to form a solid high quality educational foundation and service. We have strong links with our neighbouring Maleny State High School and as a result students enjoy a successful and seamless transition into their secondary schooling.

Every person is valued and respected.  Every interaction is important. The strength of our relationships (student/teacher/parent/staff/school community) is what sets us above most other schools. I look forward to meeting your child/ren and yourselves and welcoming you personally, into our school and community.

We are delighted to share some of the Maleny Magic that together we will create with you.
