About the school

Cunnamulla P-12 State School is an isolated prep to year 12 campus in the Darling Downs South West Region. It was founded in 1877 as Cunnamulla's first school and is situated on the banks of the Warrego River. We are approximately 900km west of Brisbane, with the closest major town being Charleville 200km to the north. One of our focus points has been to enforce with teachers the importance of building strong caring relationships with their students. There has been an emphasis on the need to bring real-life learning experiences into their classrooms that make use of local context as much as possible.
