The School

Ayr State School is a great school that is meeting the diverse needs of our students as we develop them to be active and informed citizens in the 21st century. We have a dedicated school staff who passionately believe in education and strive to develop our students to excel in their academic, sporting and social endeavours.

We are a school that cares about every individual and our expectations for success are high. We are very proud of the achievements of our students in all areas. New initiatives include implementing a program to maximise student achievement through explicit teaching, levelled literacy intervention and putting faces on the data. Our School's Strategic plan is aimed at developing successful learners, staff capacity, positive behaviour and community involvement. While Ayr State School is very much a school of the future, we place great importance on ‘old fashioned' values, such as good manners, considerate behaviour and pride in our school and ourselves.

Living in the Burdekin

Famous for being the sugar capital of Australia, The Burdekin district is located about one hour drive south of Townsville. Nestled in the delta of the mighty Burdekin River, its two popular townships—Ayr and Home Hill—are linked by the iconic Burdekin Bridge. The region produces the biggest sugar cane crops in the country, together with a diverse selection of vegetables and tropical fruits.

Along the coast you will find Alva Beach, a popular launching spot for dive boats heading out to explore the S.S Yongala shipwreck. This shipwreck has been ranked as one of the top 10 wreck dives in the world because of its abundant mega-marine life and corals. The Burdekin region is also a popular spot for fishing, well-known for it's barramundi, mudcrabs, other estuary species and off-coast reef fishing.
