Welcome to Bald Hills State School.
Since 1866, Bald Hills State School has been providing quality education
to primary school students in North Brisbane. Our school has a rich
heritage and an exciting future. Our students have a positive attitude to

Our staff implement a challenging and engaging curriculum which is
supported by research based learning (e.g. McRel – Classroom Instruction That

Although primary school is but one part of the whole education of any
individual, it is very special in the sense that the stages of growth through
which your child passes whilst at Bald Hills State School will occur only once
in his or her lifetime. I know that you will wish to share with your child and
your child’s teachers the thrill of accomplishment at each of these stages of
development. You can do this by getting to know and by keeping in touch with
your child’s teachers, and by showing your child you are involved in all that
is happening at school.
Education is an enterprise between parent and school, and is best
fostered by mutual communication
We’re delighted to share our school community with you.
