Our school was opened in 1921 and our current enrolment is
361 children, ranging from Prep to Year 7. The school is set in beautifully landscaped grounds among strawberry fields and services the communities of Chevallum, Palmwoods and Eudlo. Children also travel from as far away as Beerwah, Kawana, Mooloolah and Nambour to attend school at Chevallum.
At Chevallum State School we believe there is no such thing as an 'average' child, and are committed to the development of the full potential of the whole child. We aim to provide a curriculum that is responsive to the needs of each individual student. In providing such a curriculum we have structured our classrooms
to allow for more flexibility than is possible with traditional age grouping, and children work together in multi-age family groups.
We are currently implementing the New Basics Curriculum, an Education Queensland initiative. It is a transdisciplinary curriculum, preparing learners for the 21st century. The Curriculum deals with new student identities, new economies and workplaces, new technologies, diverse communities and complex cultures.
Our school strives to be a happy and safe place to come to - a supportive school environment in which individual differences are acknowledged and valued and in which each student feels safe and happy.
Chevallum State School's Motto is Individuals Learning Together. We aim to reflect this in the way we all operate. We hope you experience this during your association with the school.
