Yeronga State School is an inner city school that offers educational programs from Prep to Year 6, with the attached Yeerongpilly Early Childhood Development Program.

The enrolment is approximately 770 primary students, while the Yeerongpilly Early Childhood Development Program caters for approximately 115 young children from birth to pre-prep with hearing loss.

The school is set in expansive leafy surrounds and is a future-orientated, collaborative community, proud of its long history and traditions.

Yeronga State School has an inclusive, caring culture that values the diverse and multicultural aspects of our school family. By working together in an inclusive school environment our values of learning, caring, growing and achieving are put into action.

We provide opportunities for children’s social, emotional, physical and cultural growth by creating positive and dynamic learning environments. These allow students to be cognitively challenged whilst pursuing academic, cultural and sporting excellence.

The school’s dedicated and professional staff are committed to achieving quality learning outcomes and continuous school improvement. At Yeronga State School we believe curiosity and learning go hand in hand. Children are inherently curious and as educators it is our responsibility to encourage this natural love of learning.

The school’s mission is to create literate, numerate and curious learners and this is  brought to life through the adoption of an inquiry stance across the school day.  Teachers engage in agreed best teaching and learning practices from direct instruction to guided and supported inquiry, where student voice and visible thinking feature strongly.
