Oonoonba State School celebrated its Centenary in 2020. It is a school steeped in history despite a new school being built in 2002 on its current site in the middle of a newly developed estate called Fairfield Waters. The school is an Independent Public School, is enrolment managed and has a current enrolment of 521. Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) conduct an Out of School Hours Care on site. A strong relationship exists with the neighbouring C&K Kindergarten on site and surrounding Day Care Centres as well as the local cluster of state primary and secondary schools.
Oonoonba State School is an inclusive school catering for all students. Students have a range of opportunities to engage in both in the classroom and as extra curricula activities. Our motto is 'Seek knowledge and Truth' which aligns with the valuable opportunities we provide for students to achieve in academic, social and emotional, cultural and sporting pursuits. Our culture of high expectations and developing responsibility through our four expectations: Safe, Respectful, Resilient and Successful, provide a strong platform for learning and behaviour. Our belief statement, "Our students are worth whatever it takes," epitomises the strength of the community.
The Oonoonba State School community works together to ensure a great school. We are very proud of our school.
