Our school

Emu Creek has a long and proud history. The school was opened on 31 May, 1875 and through its history it has seen many changes.

Steele Rudd (Arthur Hoey Davis) attended Emu Creek State School. He is famous for the creation of the publication "On Our Selection". East Greenmount represents the setting for many of the author's famous 'Dad and Dave' stories and a replica of the family home can be found near the school.

The school motto: 'Learn, Try, Enjoy' embodies the spirit of the school. The students and staff have a strong desire to improve in all aspects of their social and academic lives.

We are currently a 2 teacher school, and our students learn to be independent and self-directed learners within this multi-age environment. Our teaching staff are very experienced at meeting the needs of each individual learner.

Information regarding our most recent teaching and learning audit can be found within the forms and documents section of our website.

Our student leadership team works with the school principal and the P&C to actively create a strong sense of ownership for the students.
