Our school

Taranganba State School is situated on Taranganba Road in the coastal township of Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast in Central Queensland. Yeppoon is in the Rockhampton Regional Council and is part of the Fitzroy-Central West Queensland Region of Education Queensland. Taranganba State School is proud to be one of the 9 schools in the Capricorn Coast Cluster.

From our opening in 1992 with a population of less than 300 students, we have grown to now be one of the largest primary schools on the Capricorn Coast. Over the last 2 years school enrolment growth has stabilized. The school now boasts a number of new facilities including an innovative teaching and learning centre – The Hub, along with a Performing Arts Centre. These facilities have allowed the school to enrich the curriculum and learning opportunities for our students.

The Taranganba school staff is committed to working in partnership with parents and the wider community to meet the needs of all of our students. Classroom curriculum offerings are extended across the school through the contributions of our Physical Education and Music and Language other than English (LOTE) Specialists. For students with highly specialised needs we have the facilities and staff of a Special Education Program. Across the school, students and teachers are supported through Learning Extension Teachers, Teacher Aides and Specialist Teaching Staff. Gifted and talented students are extended within the classroom and school community activities.

Our students are active members of local sporting and interest groups and achieve excellence in a wide range of activities.
