Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Port Douglas State School nestled between the crystal blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef and the rich green of World Heritage rainforest.

Just a scenic one hour drive north from Cairns, Port Douglas shares the same latitude as Tahiti and is justifiably recognized internationally as one of Australia’s best locations.

Our school provides the highest quality education based on the Australian National Curriculum coupled with an explicit instructional pedagogy that utilises learning opportunities that make the most of our beautiful location and tap into the diverse culture and skills of the local community.

Our school motto 'Endeavour to Succeed' makes a statement about our school’s ability and commitment to support both achievement and improvement in every student, every day.  While we value student success as our highest priority, we also ensure that our staff continue to engage in professional development that translates into engaging and effective classrooms and vibrant learning environments.

Please take some time to explore and enjoy our website and please contact the school if you have any questions.
Mr Benjamin Gaske
