Small school, big goals

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL ENROLMENTS -

MONTO State High School is an in­te­gral mem­ber of the community as the school looks to the fu­ture with con­fi­dence.

The ded­i­ca­tion of staff to pro­vide a se­cure nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment for all students en­sures that those who grad­u­ate from Monto State High School are well pre­pared for all life has to of­fer.

The trade train­ing cen­tre has been com­pleted and is now teach­ing cer­tifi­cate cour­ses in engi­neer­ing, fur­nish­ings and au­to­mo­tive.

An in­ter­ac­tive lan­guages lab­o­ra­tory was com­pleted last year.

With a di­verse range of sub­jects on of­fer in­clud­ing the arts, mu­sic and agri­cul­ture the school is able to cater to the di­verse in­ter­ests of students in small classes with ex­cel­lent teach­ers.

High num­bers of students have gone on to univer­sity and done par­tic­u­larly well, in­clud­ing most re­cently a doc­tor.

From a small en­rol­ment of 138 students the school has punched above its weight such as in the Cat­tle Club achiev­ing first place in Ju­nior Judg­ing at Rock­hamp­ton’s Beef Week.

On the sport­ing field the school has seven rep­re­sen­ta­tives on the Wide Bay team at this year’s State Sec­ondary Schools Track and Field Ti­tles.

The school is an ac­tive mem­ber of the community, tak­ing part in events and char­i­ta­ble causes such as 40 Hour Famine and Re­lay For Life.
