A team of dedicated support staff exist on site at Bunya Campus – Head of Campus, Business Services Manager, Senior Student Support Worker, Student Support Workers, Catering, Cleaning and grounds staff.

Our Senior Student Support Workers are the first point of contact for residential students and their parents.  They organise the recreation calendar, student leave permissions and day-to-day operations of the boarders, as well as supervision of staff. Dalby State High School is a member of the Australian Boarding Schools Association and we use the state of the art student management system REACH.
 
Our dedicated fulltime Student Support Workers, Recreation Officers and Student Supervisors actively supervise students around the clock, providing students with support and monitoring their health and well-being.  Boarding students have the benefit of living in a relaxed rural setting which provides a real 'home away from home' atmosphere. Students are provided five meals per day, have private climate controlled bedrooms and full academic support with our onsite residential teacher and regular visits from Nicholson campus teachers for study sessions. Bunya Campus provides boarders with a full laundry service 6 days per week, on site activities and transport to and from extra curricular commitments.

Boarding students​​ and their families have the peace of mind knowing they are living in one of the safest residential facilities for school children in Queensland, if not Australia. Each dorm is equipped with swipe card access, alarmed front and rear doors, CCTV cameras of entry and exit points as well as emergency assist buttons.  There are even sensors on the fire hoses!  All of this is monitored by State Government Security and, in addition to the Student Supervisors, a security guard is rostered on overnight to monitor and patrol the residential campus precinct.
