Principal’s welcome

James Nash State High School is an Independent Public School with a strong commitment to the education of students from the communities of Gympie, Cooloola and Kilkivan. As Principal I welcome you to our James Nash community and look forward to the education journey in front of us.

Our school is widely recognised as a great school – with this in mind I am challenging our community to “go beyond great”.  Meeting this high expectation requires a strong team to provide the learning our students will need now and into the future.  This learning extends beyond the acquisition of knowledge and into the skills that are necessary to experience success for the remainder of their lives.  These learning opportunities include an extensive range of curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Across their time with us our students will be challenged to be the best they can be.  Practicing our values of respect, positivity, persistence and hard work in conjunction with our provision of a safe, calm and disciplined learning environment provides the foundation for the success of James Nash students.
Thank you for choosing this great school and trusting us to deliver your child’s educational needs.
