As a community of learners, we are committed to -

Our vision - To develop independent thinkers, who are growing in their undertsanding of their world, and each other.

Our motto - ‘Seek and find’ encapsulates our school philosophy of developing life-long learners, capable of achieving great things through experiencing success and a love of learning.

Classes operate for children from prep to year 6. We have a range of straight classes and composite classes. You will often notice our students playing, socialising and learning across year levels. We are very proud of this culture of unity and friendship.

Railway Estate State School was established in 1916 and is a great example of architecture which suits the North Queensland climate. The stunning Queenslander styled buildings and well-kept grounds are often a talking point amongst visitors.

Railway Estate State School has a purpose built prep building, multipurpose covered sports area and science and resource centre. These buildings provide state of the art facilities for our students. You will be impressed with the excellent junior playground at the front of school that is well loved by our students. Our senior students also have their own playground, which is also well used.

Children have the latest in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) at Railway Estate State School with a fully networked computer lab capable of accommodating a whole class of students at a time. We also have iPads in every class for students to utilise and a suite of student laptops.  We are also proud of the interactive whiteboards in each classroom. These whiteboards provide an excellent vehicle for active learning and student motivation.

Our ‘6 Pillars of Character' values program enhances positive student to student and student to teacher relationships, resulting in a very supportive, optimistic and inclusive school climate that we are all very proud of here at Railway Estate State School.

We welcome you to our great school and look forward to working with you in the primary years of your child’s life-long education.
