Tewantin State School is situated at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, approximately 10km up river from the tourist destination of Noosa. The school has served the local community for over 140 years, and has a proud tradition of community involvement and academic achievement.

As a school, we aim to inspire our community of learners. We are committed to the belief that all students are entitled to enjoy growing and learning as they pass from Prep to Year 6, and beyond.

Our school has approximately 600 students and services the local area of Tewantin and Noosaville. Our families come from many areas including Sunshine Beach, Noosa Junction and Cooroy as parents and carers work in the local Tewantin area.
With many new families moving in to our local community throughout the year, Tewantin SS is well experienced in ensuring a seamless transition for our new students and families.  Students and staff warmly welcome our new arrivals in to our school community.

Tewantin State School is located in the heart of Tewantin and is in close proximity to two outstanding high schools, Noosa District and Sunshine Beach. As a main feeder school, we have a strong partnership with both schools, offering students a number of learning experiences throughout the year at each of the high schools.

Our teaching and non-teaching staff are very dedicated and have developed a strong loyalty to the school and its children. Their commitment to providing quality public education is unequalled. Additional support is provided by Advisory Teachers including a Guidance Officer and Speech Therapist.

Each year we participate in and host a number of highly successful and ever popular community events. These include, Harmony Day, Easter Hat Parade, East Timor Shoe Box Parade, ANZAC Day March and Memorial, Under 8’s Day, NAIDOC Week, Book Week and Spring Fair.

Our students also have the opportunity to participate in Gifted and Talented Programs, Acceler8 (academic extension) Classes, Instrumental Music – Brass, Woodwind and Percussion, Drum and Guitar Lessons, School Band, Ukulele Club, On-Site Swimming Lessons, International Visits from Student Study tours, Comprehensive recycling and environmental program, Story Dogs, and a wide range of sporting programs with athletics, swimming and cross country carnivals across all ages.

Tewantin State School has a strong community involvement and ties with local organisations such as the Noosa Regional Art Gallery, Rotary, Noosa Tewantin RSL, Noosa Lions Club and the CWA.

Our School Priorities in 2020 are Writing and Wellbeing.
