My name is Jackson Dodd and I am proud to be the Principal of James Nash State High School located in the picturesque rural landscape of north Gympie. James Nash State High School is a large and welcoming secondary school campus set in native bushland, with over 1200 students from ages 11 to 18. As an international school, we welcome new students from across the world each year to experience authentic Australian education and culture.
Our school's location in south-east Queensland gives visiting students the opportunity to make the most of white sandy beach and country landscapes; both of which are right on our doorstep. Our town has a rich gold mining history (dubbed 'the town that saved Queensland' when gold was discovered in 1867) with many heritage buildings still standing today. International students visiting James Nash will have the opportunity to experience everything from the bush to the beach. I am personally very proud to live in and represent such a diverse corner of the world.
James Nash is a place where we welcome new visitors and friends. Our school recognises that a quality education is a significant ingredient in a successful life and we invest heavily in the quality of our teaching. This, coupled with a diverse curriculum, extensive extra-curricular activities and a strong value set continues to prepare well-rounded young adults for the next phase of their lives.
Join us on the learning journey as we engage, empower and excel.
Since 1881, Maryborough State High School has exemplified
excellence in education. Our school community is proud
to be a part of the outstanding 139-year commitment
to educating students, both in terms of academic
outcomes and their development as lifelong learners.
Today, Maryborough State High School offers a flexible
learning environment exemplified by our students
having opportunities to engage in a variety of academic,
sporting, cultural and community programs.
As a vibrant part of the World Heritage listed Fraser
Coast area, the town of Maryborough is steeped in
history, and just a short drive to Hervey Bay provides
the stepping off point to Fraser Island, the location of
some of the world’s best whale watching encounters.
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.

All 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. Find out more about our holiday adventure programs.
