Pimlico State High School is one of the largest high schools in North Queensland. It offers its students a world-class educational experience.
Students can explore topics such as climate change and global warming, sustainability, access and quality of water or population growth, as well as biotechnology and ethics. Pimlico is also one of 20 Australian founding schools involved in the Plan for the Planet initiative of the Australian National University.
Pimlico State High School also has an excellent reputation nationally for its performing arts programs, particularly in the field of instrumental music. Several hundred students continuously participate in the extensive instrumental and vocal programs. The highlight is the annual Variety Concert presented by Pimlico. In most years, over 300 students perform on stage. The high level of artistic performance is also made possible by the company’s own Centre for Performing Arts, which is very well equipped. This is where the big concerts take place, but also many other musical events. A 3.5 million dollar expansion is currently being completed. This includes new classrooms, practice rooms, instrument storage, rehearsal facilities and a small performance space.
As an after-school activity, Pimlico State High School in Term 1 offers sailing. All interested parties are welcome, regardless of whether they are experienced sailors or completely new to sailing. Pimlico has its own fleet of “Pacer” dinghies for practice and competitions.
