Our school

Julia Creek State School is a hub of the Julia Creek community. Students, staff and parents show a great deal of pride and ownership over their school and its development. A whole-school supportive environment, monitored by all the staff, supports children’s social needs. Support staff includes access to a Guidance Officer, Speech Pathologist and learning support teacher aides. The support staff work in liaison with other agencies where necessary, such as Centacare, North & West Queensland Primary Health Care, Julia Creek Hospital and McKinlay Council (Community Nurse, Sport and Recreation Officer).

It is the intent of Julia Creek State School to provide a safe and caring social environment for our students. Many initiatives are implemented across the school year to provide students with education and skills to become resilient, functional and well-informed citizens. The school works closely with the Queensland Police Service to provide an Adopt-a-Cop to build positive relationships between police personnel and all members of the school community. Structured lessons are delivered fortnightly and form part of a social skilling program that focuses on anti-bullying education. The social skilling program aims to enable students to cope with feelings of fear, worry, and depression by building resilience and self-esteem through the active and explicit teaching of cognitive and emotional skills.
