Our school

Dajarra is a small rural remote indigenous community 153 kilometres South of Mount Isa on the Dimantina Development Road. Dajarra was once the largest trucking centre in the world, being the ‘end of the line’ for Queensland’s northern outback railway system. The train service ceased in 1988. Dajarra has a rich Aboriginal heritage and is home to many Indigenous people.

Dajarra State School caters for students from prep to year 7. There are currently two classes comprising of years prep to 2 and 3 to 7. Our focus is on providing quality and relevant learning outcomes for all students, especially in literacy and numeracy. Our fundamental belief is that every child can achieve. Our curriculum works toward ensuring students become life-long learners so that they have the abilities to become active, responsible individuals who are able to engage positively within the community and society.

Each student has an individual learning plan to ensure their fullest potential. The school also has a strong focus on implementing and refining programs that support the development of students with difficulties and having all students exposed to ‘culture’ lessons to ensure their heritage is not lost.
