Welcome to our website...
Dakabin State School was established in 1992 and is located on Sheaves Road, Kallangur on the north outskirts of the “old” Pine Shire. Parks, sports clubs, soccer fields, shopping centre, and Dakabin State High School are in close proximity to the school.
Around 550 students attend the school from Prep to Year Seven. Another 55 children have their special educational needs catered for in our Special Education Unit.
Dakabin State School continues to be the centre of great educational opportunities for
the children of the district. The school has modern facilities and is set in a spacious and attractive environment. We
continue to upgrade and enhance our facilities whenever possible.
The school prides itself on the motto “Together We Achieve” and we work hard to ensure that the community has the
opportunity to participate in and celebrate the learning journeys of the children.
At Dakabin, a wide range of curriculum and extra-curricular activities are offered. We encourage students to participate,
demonstrate sound work and behaviour ethics and to enjoy school life. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to become involved to individual comfort levels, whether it be as a classroom
volunteer or a P&C member.

What a magnificent end to an action-packed and very busy term. On Thursday we held our Annual Cross Country and we were able to improve our luck with the weather; it was a picture perfect day. A huge thanks to Mr McNee for organising such a wonderful morning. It was wonderful to see so many parents and grandparents come along to run, cheer and watch this event.
Who could forget those amazing Prep Teachers in their tutus warming up the Preps before their big race. On parade we were able to announce the winners of the races and also present the "Steve Bennet Shield" to the winning house, Magpies. It was great to see Mr Bennett again, who came along to watch the running.
Congratulations to the place-getters for the formal races. From these races students are then selected
to participate in the Pine Rivers District Cross Country to represent our school.
Today we break up for the Autumn break which include the Easter Holidays. School will return on Tuesday 22nd April. Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday. Kelly Jeppesen Principal
Senior Choir meets Miss Nizic on Tuesdays in the Music room at 1st break. Junior Choir meets with Miss Nizic and Mrs Griffiths in B Block, at 1st break on Wednesday. Both the Senior and Junior choirs are practising their song for our ANZAC Day ceremony in Week 1.
This week the students will bring home the words and it would be appreciated if you could encourage your child to practise them during the holidays.
Our Mothers Day stall will be held on May 7th. The craft group is still in desperate need of crafts for our stall. If you are able to help please contact me on 0435 130 435.
Just a reminder that our school tuckshop will operate 5 days a week beginning next term.
Chappy's Quote of the Week:"Today you are YOU, that is TRUER than true. There is NO ONE alive who is YOUER than YOU!" (Dr. Seuss). And another one from Dr. Seuss: "Why fit in when you were born to STAND OUT!"
We are all unique. And we are all awesome. In all of our intricately different ways. I see some kids, and even friends of mine, trying to fit in with the latest trends. And sometimes, those trends are great and useful! But when you go along to someone's 21st or 30th or 40th or even 80th, you hear stories of their uniqueness - their crazy moments, their finest moments, and how much they are loved. So today (and always), be yourself - it's who you were made to be.
So to all of our awesome Dakabin students and their families, have a fantastic holiday and a happy Easter! Keep safe over the holidays and see you in Term 2. Chappy Josh
