Kelso State School

​Kelso State School is a Band 8 primary school situated in a rural setting on the outskirts of Townsville.  Often described as 'the best kept secret in Townsville', many of our community have made a lifestyle choice to settle in this essentially rural area, close to the Ross River dam. Kelso State School is situated on Yvette Street in Kelso (turn right off Riverway Drive).

At Kelso, we believe that the Future is in Our Hands, and we aim to maximise the learning of every student by unlocking their potential, unchaining their imaginations and forging keys for their futures.

Our Prep to Year 6 Curriculum is grounded in the basics of literacy and numeracy and focused on supporting and extending students to achieve their personal best across all the key learning areas.
