The Scenic Rim primary school bringing the future of schooling to Boonah

Nestled in the natural beauty of the Scenic Rim, the charming country town of Boonah is a quaint community known for its farming, tourism and spectacular scenery. A cornerstone of this town is All Saints’ Primary School. And since 1956, this small school has played a big part in Boonah’s life.

However, this community Catholic primary school is anything but sleepy! And with the addition of two state-of-the-art buildings to its growing campus, All Saints’ School aims to bring the future of schooling to Boonah.

“This year, we continue to enhance our school’s mission to provide quality learning and teaching environments with two new state-of-the-art buildings and an extension to our existing library to incorporate our vision for 21st-century technological learning,” said acting Principal Robert Campbell.

Scheduled to complete in 2024, the upgrade includes a new administration building and new classrooms, including a Prep room, multipurpose room, general learning areas, extension to the existing library, construction of new learning support space, uniform store, technology area, sports store, PWD amenity and staff amenities.

Despite its exciting ambitions in the tech space, this nurturing school will always have its Scenic Rim community at the heart of its growth.

“All Saints’ has an incredible community feel with regular events and social justice initiatives,” said Mr Campbell.

“We are proud of All Saints’ historical place within the community, our student’s achievements and our continued importance within Boonah and the surrounding district.”

A quality primary school in the Scenic Rim

Being a small Catholic school, this unique Boonah primary school has a strong focus on providing a well-rounded education to all its students.
“Our school is dedicated to helping its students achieve their full potential as lifelong learners in a school environment that promotes and encourages parent and community partnerships,” said Mr Campbell.

“We practice ‘Respect’ and ‘Kindness’ daily, and these virtues tie into our motto of Faith, Wisdom and Family. We believe these make up our school’s and students’ unique character.”

All Saints’ School has developed a fine reputation for providing a quality Catholic education for the children of Boonah and the district.  It is now well placed to continue the tradition and to prepare the students of All Saints’ for the challenges of the 21st Century.”

This latest upgrade at All Saints’ Boonah is in response to the expected future growth of the Boonah community, which is projected to experience an increase of more than 4,000 additional persons by 2041.

This growth is fuelled by families looking for a better lifestyle beyond the cities to call home.

The township of Boonah, which is currently home to approximately 2500 people, supports the outlying areas of Kalbar, Harrisville, Peak Crossing, Aratula, Mount Alford, Roadvale, Warrill View, Rosevale, Maroon and Dugandan.

Located 41 kilometres west of Beaudesert and 48 kilometres south of Ipswich, the town is the primary service centre catering to the district’s needs with various businesses, services and commercial activities.

All Saints’ Boonah is part of the Brisbane Catholic Education network of 146 Catholic schools operating across the Archdiocese of Brisbane, providing more than 77,000 students with a high-quality Catholic education.

“Everyone is welcome at All Saints’! I invite you to visit our beautiful school to speak with me or browse the school website to learn more about our vibrant and innovative education and community,” said Mr Campbell.
