Welcome to Townsville Central State School

Townsville Central State School has dedicated and experienced staff, thoughtful and positive students and active and involved parents. The school proudly fosters a very strong, inclusive and positive community. Our three focus areas this year are reading, writing and student wellbeing.
Townsville Central is 150 years old this year, the oldest school in Townsville.  We celebrated this with a huge weekend of events in May. The school is located on the site of the original Townsville Gaol, giving us a strong sense of history. Situated in North Ward and within walking distance of the Strand, Queens Gardens, Castle Hill, Townsville Sports Reserve and the CBD - we believe this gives us the best location for a school in Townsville.
We have an extensive Instrumental Music program, and run many clubs and programs for students for a holistic education. Some of our clubs include Art, Choir, Science, STEAM and Footy. We also participate in Junior ATSIAP (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Aspirations Program) and Global Tropics Virtual STEM Academy programs.
We have an Early Years Levelled Reading Program for Prep to Year 2, three mornings a week. We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL school) and our current whole-school activities include Drum Circle and  The Resilience Project (GEM:Gratitude, Empathy and 
Mindfulness) which form part of our wellbeing framework of support.  
Here at Townsville Central, we want all children to do their best, far surpassing what we perceive as their potential.
