Oxley State School was opened on 31 January 1870 and enjoys a reputation as a small school catering to the local community. Our school has a current enrolment of 520 students.
New classrooms have been constructed to allow for the school's growth, with a new Prep building constructed in 2008, two new classrooms in 2009, and a new Resource Centre and Multipurpose Hall completed in November 2010. Nine classrooms have been fully refurbished and all classrooms, except one, are fully air-conditioned. Students have access to computers and there are 19 interactive whiteboards installed in learning areas, with wireless access in other areas to allow flexible learning.
Our curriculum is delivered by highly professional and experienced classroom teachers, who are supported by specialist Music, LOTE, Learning Support, Physical Education teachers and a Teacher Librarian. Teacher Aides also work as part of our teaching team.
Students are encouraged to participate in various activities such as art shows, musicals, sport and academic competitions. The school is set on an expansive area of land, providing ample outdoor play space.
We encourage parent participation in the school through the P&C Association or by volunteering for school activities.
The Oxley School Song
At Oxley School the years come and go
The happy and sad times still we know
Where the people are helpful and friendly to know
May always our song be sung.
We keep on trying to do our best
To come out on top when we face the test
Success through effort is our role
We belong to Oxley School, we belong to Oxley School.
Words and music by David MacGregor, with assistance from Val Hammond and the Year 7H students in December 1978
