Townsville Central State School is the oldest school in Townsville and celebrated its 150th birthday in March 2019. Situated on the site of the original gaol with Castle Hill and Queens Gardens in the background and The Strand just down the road, our school has arguably the best location in the area.
Our school values are: Wonder | Teamwork | GEM (Gratitude Empathy Mindfulness) | Acceptance | Resilience

Students engage with the curriculum through Science Club, Art Club, Japanese Club, Wellbeing Club, Hot Ropes, Sporting Schools, Opti-Minds, Global Tropics Futures and a quarter of our students participate in our Instrumental Music Program.
Our pedagogical framework is based on Visible Teaching, Visible Learning, and our behaviour framework is Positive Culture for Learning (PCL), based on Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL), Restorative Practices and The Resilience Project (GEM).
