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 being involved.
Our school curriculum is based on the Australian Curriculum and utilises C2C (Curriculum to Classroom) resources.
The Speech Sound Pics approach is used to teach reading, writing and spelling in the early years.
We also use the Seven Steps to Writing Success program to support students in the development of their writing skills.
A native Chinese-speaker teaches Chinese (Mandarin) to students in Years 3–6.
All students participate in a music lesson each week, and Years 3–6 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.
