In 2013, Banksia Beach State School was named as an Independent Public School in recognition of the high quality educational opportunities offered to students in the areas of academia, sport, music and citizenship.
Banksia Beach State School offers Programs of Excellence in Academia, Sport and Performing Arts. We lead the way in offering educational experiences which promote the growth and development of well-balanced, confident young students. Through a differentiated and negotiated curriculum our students are able to access all core requirements of ACARA while meeting challenges within a supportive environment to encourage skill development within their chosen Program of Excellence.
With the development of a specialised Year 7 program, the transition to high school is a smooth
and co-ordinated journey which supports our students and ensures a successful advancement. The Programs of Excellence assist with recognition and inclusion in high school extension programs. The integration of quality ICT resources in every classroom allows our students to access the latest technologies.
Our students learn the value of striving for excellence and through this effort change not only their educational outcomes but also their lives. We are Team Banksia and we strive for success every day.
