History

On February 1, 1871 The Beenleigh School, No 6 operating under the National System was opened with a Public Tea Meeting, 200 adults and children being present.  By the end of the month 62 children were registered, their ages ranging from 5 to 16 years.
 
 In 2011 the school reached a massive milestone celebrating 140 years.
 
The school is attractively presented - offering a welcoming environment to its school community and visitors.  Through the “Building the Education Revolution” we now have a Hall, new Resource Centre and a Science Centre. The school also has modern new facilities for Students with Disabilities and for students with English as a Second Language.
 
Beenleigh State School, located in the South Coast Region, services the community of Beenleigh and draws students from surrounding suburbs such as Eagleby, Mount Warren Park and Edens Landing.
 
Today, Beenleigh School, standing on a hectare site, reflects the past and the present through its mix of traditional and open plan classrooms.
 
The school is an inner urban one, servicing a community reflecting diverse social and ethnic backgrounds.  The school caters for a somewhat transient population, but at the same time provides for the educational needs of a large settled core of families.  The community consists of recently established residential areas, cluster housing developments and established homes.
