Pinnacle State School is located in the picturesque Pioneer Valley, 53km west of Mackay. The school has been established for 105 years and serves a rural community. The school has an active Parents and Citizens Association and Student Project Club.
Pinnacle State School is part of the Pioneer Valley Cluster. This cluster was formed to support each other in developing our schools so that we can maximise resources, both human and physical, share and develop curriculum, provide professional development opportunities, and provide students with greater interaction opportunities.
There are approximately 29 students enrolled from Prep to Year 7. Over the past 10 years student enrolment has remained fairly stable.
Students with special needs are catered for, through provision of support personnel, teacher aide time, and the physical structure of the school.
The students enjoy a wide variety of sporting activities, and all year levels mix and play well together. As part of the cluster initiative, the cluster schools meet to participate in sport and cultural activities.
