Giru State School

​Nestled in the shadow of Mt Surround and beside the rich fishing waters of the Haughton River is Education Queensland's best kept secret of the north, Giru State School. The students, parents and staff who call this idyllic school home quote,

"It's the family atmosphere pervading the school environs which makes Giru State School so special".

Our school serves as the educational hub for the town of Giru and the fertile farms surrounding the township. Our classroom, specialist teachers, and support staff, work together to meet the educational, sporting, and social/emotional needs of our students. The hardworking, cheerful and cooperative children of our school make working here each day something we all look forward to.

Our school has a proud history of academic, sporting and cultural achievement dating back to when our doors first opened in 1924. Our motto echoes our beliefs as we encourage and support our students to 'Strive for Success' each and every day.

The Giru School community is one of supportive parents who create a cooperative partnership together with us for the benefit of all students attending this great school. ​​​​​

What is PBL?
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is an evidence-based whole school framework that actively promotes positive behaviour. It enables students to develop a clear understanding of required expectations, become responsible for their own behaviour and work together to create a positive, productive and harmonious learning community. Our school-wide behavioural expectations/ rules are:
·         Be Safe,
·         Be Respectful, and
·         Be Successful
Our rules are represented through our super hero mascots, Safety Boy, Respecter Girl and Captain Successful.
