Our school

Moreton Downs is a band 10 State Primary School with an enrolment of 710 students.

We provide quality learning programs in all Key Learning Areas for students from the Preparatory Year to Year 6.

As well, the school has a Special Education Program that provides an inclusive program for approximately 30 students.

In 2011, we trialled the Recognition and Response Program in years P-3 which allowed us to provide support for identified children without a required verification who were identified as needing learning support.

In 2013, we continued with this philosophy and provided early intervention for students in the early years, using this resource..

Moreton Downs was opened in 1995 and has a mix of permanent and temporary buildings. We are proud of our learning environment which is second to none, thanks to our wonderful grounds-person, in presentation and maintenance. We continue to upgrade our learning and play areas through submissions to a range of organisations. This year we will replace ageing equipment in our early years playgrounds and install some much needed seating for student use.

We have a dedicated staff with a wealth of teaching experience. We have employed quality beginning teachers in the past few years and have been able to continue with them on contract.

Our community is supportive of our school and our P and C is active in providing services for community members and resources for our school.

We look forward to another year of ‘positive parent participation’ at MDSS.


Moreton Downs State School is situated 30 Kilometres north of Brisbane between Deception Bay to the North and Northlakes to the South. The school services the Moreton Downs and Deception Bay communities that form part of the school’s enrolment boundary.
