Parramatta State School was established in 1927.

During the 1950's Parramatta State School was one of the largest schools outside of Brisbane with an enrolment of over 1000 students. With the rapid expansion of northern beaches and southern suburbs in Cairns, enrolment numbers have reduced significantly over the years, now standing at approximately 450 students.


Parramatta State School focuses on literacy and numeracy, but offers a broad curriculum that integrates the use of learning technologies. Every classroom is equipped with a ceiling/wall digital projector and teachers and students have access to a modern library, music and sports facilities.

Parramatta's student population is diverse. The suburban community comprises a broad cross section of occupations and cultural groupings. The student population reflects the social and cultural diversity of the surrounds. A significant feature of the school is its multi—cultural community. Parramatta State School has high expectations for all students for both academic performance and standards of behaviour. Behaviour expectations are supported by our school wide positive behaviour (5100kb PDF) program.

Our school population consists of students Prep to Year 7, as well as a Special Education Program and an Early Childhood Development Unit catering for 55 students aged 0—5 years old.

An Outside School Hours Care program also runs morning and afternoons at Parramatta.
Before School Care 6.30am — 8.45am, After School Care 2.30pm — 6.00pm.
