Broadwater State School is a rural school, seven kilometres west of the town of Stanthorpe, drawing the majority of its students from the town area, with the remainder coming from the local Broadwater area.
We have an increasing population of identified Indigenous heritage students, with the balance of students originating from Australian-European backgrounds. More than half the families are single parent families with many being seasonal farm workers or unemployed. Other parents are workers in local businesses, small business owners, teachers, professional and admin officers.
Our students work in three multi-age classes, in very pleasant, low set airconditioned modular classrooms fully engaged in learning activities with their class teachers.
