Hercules Road State School was opened in 1976. Since then our school has grown to be one of the largest schools in the area, with a proud history of academic, arts and sporting achievements.
At Hercules Road State School our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which all children can develop a love of learning and positive self-esteem, thus equipping them with the confidence needed to take risks in their learning. We believe that this can be achieved by following our rules and values, known as ‘The HERCS’.
Honesty - be honest always
Effort - be punctual and prepared
Respect - show respect for children, adults, our school and the community
Cooperation - co-operate with others
Safety – be safe
Through the application of these rules and the use of positive behaviour management strategies, we encourage students to make responsible choices and assist them in learning to do this independently.
At Hercules Road State School our drama, music, sports and leadership programs are designed to educate the 'whole' person so that our students are offered a rounded and comprehensive education, and are fully equipped to deal with the rigours and opportunities that abound in the real world. We believe that individually and collectively 'People Make the Difference' and we are committed to the success of each and every student in our school.
