It is one of the three state high schools in the provincial city of Rockhampton and provides compulsory and post compulsory secondary education programs to a student population of over 1000 students. Approximately twelve per cent of our students are Indigenous and the local clan is the Darumbal people. The school has strong partnerships with the local Indigenous organisations.
