Annandale State School is a large school for Prep to Year 6 students, located in a suburb in the
heart of tropical Townsville and close to shopping, parks and sporting facilities.
Our motto is ‘Creating the Future’, and we balance academic studies with music, sport and learning support.
We value good manners and pride in ourselves and our school and we welcome parents to be involved.
Our curriculum includes a real-world mathematics program developed by the Queensland University of
Technology (QUT) to improve learning and encourage students to participate in higher-level maths.
We also use the Seven Steps to Writing Success program.
All students participate in a music lesson each week, and Years 3 to 6 can choose to learn to play an instrument and sing in a choir.
Annandale is a feeder school to the local state high school - William Ross State High School.
In 2017, we welcomed 62 international students.
Homestay* enables EQI students to truly experience Australia's famous lifestyle.
By living with an Australian host family international students become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment. International students often develop lasting friendships with their homestay families.
Standard Homestay fees have been set and these are listed on the EQI program fees page.

EQI Holiday Adventure Programs are an exciting and safe way for International Students to travel and sightsee during school holidays.
There's an EQI adventure to suit every taste - from visiting city landmarks and riding camels on an unforgettable Australian 'outback' adventure, to exploring ancient rainforests and swimming with turtles off Queensland's pristine white sand beaches.
All EQI Holiday Adventures are fully guided and escorted by qualified Queensland Government teachers and staff to ensure student safety. These programs are open to international students enrolled in an EQI high school, and additional fees apply. To find out more visit the holiday programs page
