Principal's Welcome

​​​​It is a pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful school. Our school has great pride in our strong school values, our high expectations, and our drive towards academic excellence.

As the school principal who also lives in the Springfield area and has my three children also attending my school, I know that our school and community is safe, is supportive and strives to ensure our students reach their potential.

International students at Springfield Central State High School are very important to us and do receive that extra care and attention they deserve. Our family values at school and with our homestay families are our strength. Each international student is individually mentored to ensure their grades, their study and their next pathway is successful.

Our broad study options and growing university partnerships also place our students well for their future.

I look forward to being a part of you and your child’s future schooling.

Three reasons to choose Springfield Central State High School

  1. The school sits within the community of Greater Springfield which embraces globalism
  2. Strong partnership and close proximity to the Union Institute of Language, Springfield
  3. Staff, school and homestays are upskilled and committed to the wellbeing and success of 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.

  • Students have their own bedroom with study facilities, three meals a day, and access to transport to and from school, and to school activities
  • Host families are carefully selected from within the school community and undergo a police check as required by Queensland law

Standard Homestay fees have been set and these are listed on the EQI program fees page.
