School Facilities

The Buildings:​

The growth and development of Esk State School is a story told by its facilities.  Block A, which houses classrooms and the administration offices, is the oldest building.  With tongue and groove walls, and the ever present louvres, this building retains its gracefulness and utility.  B block with its four classrooms and C block that now houses a classroom, and Before and After School Care, form a courtyard that is softened by the dappled light of the trees - including the Lone Pine planted in memory of our ANZACs.  The prep block was the old preschool building, though its usage has changed of course to reflect the changing curriculum.

There now a dedicated staffroom, the Janet Pearce Resource Centre/Library, an covered play area, a multi-purpose sports hall, a tuckshop and a uniform shop.

Swimming Pool:

The Somerset Regional Council and the School together run the Esk Community Pool located on the school grounds and accessible from Mary Street.  Community access is outside of school hours.  For more information about the public hours and events held at the pool, please click here.

Hall:

Our school hall is widely utilized by the staff and students, and is also open for community use / hire agreements.  These can be arranged by application and negotiation with the principal.

Dirrin Yarni:

Again on school grounds, accessible from Mary Street, is the area put aside to acknowledge the culture of the First Australians of the area - The Yuggera People.

The garden was designed by the Yuggera people, with crew, signage and all garden materials provided by the Toowoomba Pipeline Alliance.  It incorporates symbols of significance to the Yuggera including:

  • yinala (sitting place)
  • churri bulla (gardens featuring plants used for bush tucker and bush medicines)
  • chararah (paths indicating travelling patterns, similar to a map.
  • janderwal (ironbark trees) left in place.
  • bun-ah (bloodwood trees) left in place to represent a battle between the Yuggera and Githabul people at Boonah in the Scenic Rim region, neighbouring the Brisbane Valley.
  • Tuckshop

    Having tuckshop for both breaks on Tuckshop day, is a highlight of the week.

  • Uniforms

    The Uniform Shop is run by the P&C. It is through here that families are able to purchase new and used uniforms.
