Our school


Buddina State School opened in 1979 and became an Independent State School in 2016.  The school currently caters for approximately 750 students from Prep to Year 6 who not only engage in the learning expectations of the Australian Curriculum but are also offered an extensive range of extra-curricula opportunities.  These range from the academics of the Inspire Excellence Programme, artistic outlets of the Artist in Residence Programme and the biennial musical as well as surfing and skateboarding via our academy.

The school has a reputation for excellence and is well served by dedicated, enthusiastic and caring staff who most willingly and ably share their talents and abilities with students and other professionals.  An extensive support network is in place to cater for students of all abilities.
The parent community has strong representation through an active P&C and School Council that has a vested interest in gaining the best opportunities for the students of Buddina.  A parent forum meets regularly to allow parent representatives from all 31 classes time to discuss aspects of the school with me.
I believe that you will find the Buddina State School community a very welcoming one and I encourage you to become involved in your child’s learning as well as the social aspects of the school and help us to maintain the supportive network we currently have.
