Our school

Macknade State School is a small school nestled amongst the cane fields and the Herbert River just, north of Ingham . It has a long and proud history of offering quality education to the Lower Herbert community; ever since it opened back in 1893.


As a small school we provide a rich, personalised learning experience in a supported family atmosphere.  We pride ourselves on being able to provide a well-balanced, value-rich curriculum, through which we foster deep understanding, curiosity and a desire to achieve excellence.


We strive to develop character and healthy bodies through participation in a wide range of sports and healthy lifestyle choice.


Our aim is to develop the whole person at Macknade, teaching them values, compassion, resilience and preparing them for success as life-long learners and successful citizens.
