Welcome back to all of our wider school community!

Back to school for the Nguyen family

Back to school for the Nguyen family

I would like to extend a warm welcome to our returning and new students and families joining Rainbow Beach State School this year.

We are proud of the successes in 2020, especially given the challenges faced along the way. Our staff are feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after the summer holidays and we are ready to have some fun in 2021.

This year we will have a Prep/1 Class with myself and Mrs Lawler as the teachers. We both consider ourselves privileged to be working with these young people at the beginning of their primary education journey.

We will have a Year 2/3 class led by the dynamic duo Ms Tina McColl and Mrs Lynne Chamberlain. We also have a Year 4/5/6 class taught by inspirational Mr Peter Mileson.

Our school and students will also be supported by our incredible teacher aides, Mrs Theresa Dargusch, Mrs Jill Lane and Mrs Sarah Brantz.

We have the amazing Mrs Cate White in administration who is the friendly face in the office.

We also need to mention Mr Micheal White and Mr Marty Picot who keep our grounds looking ship shape!  These people, along with our students and families, are the reason we have a great school.

We are very happy to have Chappy Ronnie returning to Rainbow Beach State School this year! For those that may not have had the pleasure of meeting Chappy Ronnie, she worked at Rainbow Beach State School a few years ago and was always ready to lend a hand wherever she was needed.

We are all very excited to have her back and look forward to working with her in support of our wider school community.

I look forward to sharing our school news and events with you in 2021.


Rainbow Beach State School is one of the fortunate schools across Queensland to host KindyLinQ again in 2021.

KindyLinQ is an early learning program for three- and four-year-old children who attend with a parent/caregiver.

KindyLinQ is play based and aims to support children’s learning, development and engagement prior to starting school.

Sessions will recommence at Rainbow Beach State School library on Tuesday February 2, run every Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 11 am and are provided free of charge.

Our team has been busy organising resources for this initiative. This year KindyLinQ sessions will be run by Rainbow Beach State School teacher, Mrs Lynne Chamberlain, (Miss C) and Early Years Support Co-ordinator, Mrs Sarah Brantz.

If you have any questions or would like to be a part of KindyLinQ please contact Rainbow Beach State School on 5486 9333 or drop in and say hello. We are very excited and can’t wait to see our KindyLinQ friends again.
