Goondi State School is a prep to year 6 primary school situated in Innisfail in the heart of the beautiful Cassowary Coast. It caters for some 400 students and has a wonderful blend of town and country children. Our students are drawn from residential suburbs, small acreage properties and extensive banana and cane farms.
Goondi State School is held in high regard by the Innisfail community and we are immensely proud of the standard of education we provide for our students. Our focus is very much on high-yield teaching approaches such as Explicit Teaching and Direct Instruction and the development of student literacy and numeracy through implementing highly structured Reading, Writing, Spelling and Mathematics programs.
Our school motto is “Dare To Do Well” and this is reflected in all aspects of our school with staff consistently aiming towards best practice and students striving to be the best that they can be.
