Our school

Spinifex State College – Mount Isa opened in 2003 after community consultation determined that the two previous state high schools - Mount Isa State High School and Kalkadoon State High School - should merge.

Spinifex State College - Mount Isa is a three campus educational facility. Commencing 2015 junior campus will cater to years 7-9, senior campus years 10-12 and the residential campus.

College colours

Our college colours are navy blue and burnt orange. These colours were selected by the school community, as they represent our district – the blue of the sky and the orange of our earth.

College motto

Our college motto is: sharing knowledge, creating our future.

College logo

Our college logo was selected after community consultation. The logo was designed by a former Mount Isa student, Janet Pogorelc. Janet proposed this logo as a new stylised representation of the Spinifex plant, emerging from a box, representing the idea of thinking outside the box.

Sporting houses

The school community voted on a number of options that had been proposed by school members. The house names chosen are named after the local water reserves.
