Our school

Victoria Plantation State School is a co-educational p-6 band 5 school situated 5 km east of the township of Ingham and 120 km north of Townsville. Ingham is renowned for it's sugar cane farming, however cattle farming is also quite predominant within the district. The community relies heavily on the Wilmar sugar mills, Macknade and Victoria for employment. Victoria is the largest sugar mill in Australia and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere.

The school has a strong and proud history. It is generously supported by the local community with a high volume of parents being integral members of the Ingham district. Many are employed through Victoria Mill; however we are also represented by educators, police, fire officers, bank managers and local business owners.

Victoria Plantation is a committed member of the "Impact" group. This alliance is a cluster of small schools within the district that believe there are many advantages to being educated in a small semi-rural multi-age school. The schools work together to create and maintain sustainable programs, which foster life-long learners who have developed effective academic and social skills. We value a shared approach to curriculum, assessment and reporting, teaching and partnerships between district schools and their communities.

Victoria Plantation State School has 5 mandates:

  • Clear teacher and student engagement to high academic performance.

  • High standards of student behaviour.

  • Strong emphasis on uniform code.

  • High attendance (above 95%) and punctuality.

  • Emphasis on high levels of respect.

There is also a Charter of expectations (PDF, 476 KB) that students, staff, parents and community adhere to at all time.
