Our staff

Benowa State High School has over 200* staff, volunteers, contractors and community support representatives providing quality education and care in a clean, safe and supportive environment for your student. We employ more than 125 teachers who deliver tuition across a wide variety of subject areas from years 7 to 12.

Our support services include career guidance, indigenous support, chaplaincy, school nurse, computer technicians, scientific assistants, teacher aides, janitorial and grounds staff, cleaners and office staff. Each year level is cared for by a year coordinator who is dedicated to that year level only and works closely with students and their families to r​esolve support issues and look after student well-being.
