Wyreema is a rapidly growing sleeper suburb just to the south of Toowoomba (Queensland's largest inland city: pop-170,000). Sitting on the edge of the Great Escarpment and the rich Darling Downs, Toowoomba is where you'll find a vibrant cultural, dining and entertainment scene, beautiful parks and gardens. You will be a pleasant 45 minutes' drive to the large historic town of Warwick, and have close access to Brisbane and the coasts.

Wyreema State School began in 1895 and is a friendly, family orientated state school approximately 15 km from Toowoomba, tucked away in a safe, rural location. The town of Wyreema and the surrounding area is home to farming families and families that have chosen Wyreema for lifestyle while commuting to work in Toowoomba or away.

As a small school we offer a straight Prep and three other multigrade classes with a high adult to child ratio, and much of each student's learning is done in small groups. Computers and technology are an important part of the students' learning and we cater for students needs with one computer per 2 students. We have a Physical Education specialist on site and an Indonesian Language specialist teacher visits our school each week.  Weekly Instrumental Music lessons are available and our Arts program is explicitly taught through music, visual arts, dance, media and drama.

This opportunity will transition to Permanent Allocation.

Please refer to our website to get an insight into what we do and achieve each week.
