If you are already a member of our school community, I trust that you find our website to be a rich and useful source of information about our great school.
If, on the other hand, this is your first introduction to our school, I hope that it is the beginning of a new and lasting relationship with our community.
Pioneer is a school that lives up to its name - we truly are a pioneering learning community, committed to our students and continuous improvement.
We have a strong desire to work together to prepare students for the exciting, challenging and rapidly changing future in which they will live and work. In enacting our vision, we strike a balance between, preserving proud traditions and instilling important values and, providing an innovative and responsive curriculum based on the latest educational research and world best practice.
A true strength of Pioneer is the welcoming, caring and inclusive nature of our community. This is reflected in our Island Care system, in which each student is supported by the same Care Teacher along their entire journey through the six years of high school. From year 7 onwards students are also assisted by a range of programs and support personnel and are encouraged to play an active role in our community through mechanisms such as our Student Council, the FlexiSpace, The Resilience Project partnership with the NQ Cowboys and Island Spirit Cup.
Since its foundation in 1986, Pioneer has forged a reputation for excellence in a range of fields, across academia, the arts and sport. Our school is part of the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy, providing exciting opportunities for students to learn about and engage with the local mining industry and offers many opportunities through Vocational Education. We are a Centre of Excellence in both Science and The Arts, providing a comprehensive range of both curricular and co-curricular opportunities in these two fields of endeavour. Our arts programs allow students to excel in drama, visual art and film and television, as well as instrumental music. Our students have also enjoyed success in a diverse range of sports, including futsal, soccer, touch and volleyball.
I invite you to join our community on our journey of learning and innovation.
