Principal’s welcome

I am extremely proud to be the Principal of Elanora State High School and it is a great honour to lead this proud co-educational, comprehensive state high school. I joined the Elanora State High School community six years ago following principal appointments at both Biloela State High School and Keebra Park State High School. I value working closely with staff, parents and students of Elanora State High School in improving the educational outcomes for all.

Our 2018 graduates all achieved their QCE or QCIA – the first time in our school's history and we began 2019 with our largest ever Year 7 enrolment. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all returning families and also any new families to the Elanora State High School community. A special welcome to our new Year 7 students who took advantage of our personalised enrolment service for all incoming Year 7 students.

2019 is the commencement of a new Senior Assessment regime and our staff and students are working in partnership in preparation for the first round of external exams commencing on Monday October 26 2020. This new regime provides an excellent opportunity for curriculum renewal and we have introduced a number of new exciting areas of study this year.

Our school focus is on providing your child with the skills and knowledge to make a successful transition to their preferred post school options. These transitions are most successful when there is a strong working relationship between school and home – please ensure that you take every opportunity to attend our key information sessions throughout the year and if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact the school.

This website provides you with an excellent insight into our great school, please peruse this site or feel free to come in and meet the welcoming staff of Elanora SHS to discover what we can offer your child.

Our school values Positive Education and we are continually striving for every member of our school community to be flourishing. I look forward to ensuring that every day at Elanora State High School counts for every student.​

Yours in education,​


Cameron Hodges, Principal
