Welcome to Merinda State School

Located 10 kilometres north of Bowen, Merinda State School strives to provide quality education for children in Prep to Year 6 in three multi-age classes. This is achieved through a quality curriculum, small staff to student ratios and a commitment to ongoing professional development. 

Our school’s core priorities are to create an atmosphere that enables all students to engage in life-long learning and assist them to reach their full potential. Our highly educated staff are committed to delivering an education based on individual learning needs. 

We believe that schools are successful when they seek to involve the school community in the development of educational programs and decision making. Merinda works in partnership with the community, responding to local needs and valuing social diversity to create a learning environment that responds to student needs and development.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Please contact us if you require additional information or have any questions.

We invite you to visit our school to experience the spirit of Merinda and see why our students love school and learning!​​

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land, the Juru People, on which we work, travel and live.  We pay our respects to their Elders, their Ancestors and Future Generations.
