Jondaryan State School was established in 1872 and is a small school located just ten minutes from Oakey. The school has composite classes, supporting students from prep to year six. The school offers a close family atmosphere with small class sizes and a wide variety of resources. Jondaryan State School is an excellent alternative to a large school. The school provides all students with individual attention. Multi-age classrooms allow students to progress at their individual pace. Students can be extended to suit their abilities in different learning areas providing an environment that facilitates the individual child's learning needs. 


Jondaryan State school is well resourced with students having access to the latest technologies and educational opportunities. Students from Jondaryan State School participate in a range of education and extracurricular activities. Students participate in sporting events at other schools, as well as excursions, Under Eights Day, Swimming lessons and many more. Jondaryan State School offers all the opportunities of a large school but with individual attention and a family atmosphere only available at a small school. 


The mission of Jondaryan State School is to facilitate the academic, cultural, physical and social development of each child and in doing so encourage children to become self-motivated learners who can work independently or co-operatively. 


Our school rules are 'Be Safe', Be Responsible' and Be Respectful'; we encourage and assist our students to have the following values: Confidence, Getting Along, Persistence, Resilience and Organisation.
