Leadership Program

Boulia State School believes that it is important for students to be involved in a leadership program to allow them to grow and develop into independent lifelong learners. Students are involved in a range of activities involving leading school parades, special ceremonies, and student council meetings and are role models for the students and whole school community.

Chaplain service

Every three weeks, Boulia State School has the pleasure of welcoming Mr Chappy Peter and Miss Chappy Christine to our school. During their visit they teach the students a lesson from the 'You Can Do It' program, coordinate SUPA club on a Wednesday afternoon from 3.00pm to 3.30pm, assist with Garden Club, assist with town Library lessons, complete handy jobs around the school such as fixing minor things and overall are a friendly face for both the students and staff to have chat with. Boulia State School thoroughly enjoys when our Chappies visit and we appreciate all their kind support and help.

Boulia Shire Council Library lessons

Every week the Boulia State School students and staff walk to the Boulia Shire Council Library to borrow and return books as an extra-curricular activity outside of school hours. All of the students of Boulia State School have become state library member and have received their very own library card. The students thoroughly enjoy library lessons, which they can explore the enjoyment of borrowing, returning and reading books.

Homework Club

Every Monday afternoon from 2.30pm to 3.00pm the Boulia State School students have the opportunity to compete their homework at school with the support of the classroom teacher and teacher aides.

Garden Club

In the cooler months of the school year, every Wednesday afternoon the students from Boulia State School take part in our Garden Club. Both the Pioneers and the Min Mins classes work together in groups to tackle to jobs in our garden and orchard.

Jobs include:

  • digging over the garden beds
  • topping up the level of dirt in the gardens
  • pulling out last year’s finished plants
  • planting seeds to germinate into this year’s plants
  • fertilising the fruit trees in the orchard.

The students and staff love working outside in the vegetable garden, orchard and chook pen. This year’s garden includes beans, corn, carrots, tomatoes, silverbeet, zucchinis, snow peas, watermelon, sweet potato and herbs. The children enjoy the work involved in our Garden Club and are delighted to see the results of their effort. Please come and have a look at our fruit trees—mango, lime, mandarin, pomegranate and kumquat. We can’t wait to be harvesting this year’s crop of fruit and vegetables.
