New Farm State School is representative of the complex and diverse community of which it is part.

Students attending New Farm live within a community constructed of approximately one-third non-Australian born residents. According to the most recent Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data these are primarily from the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Italy. However approximately 25% of the local community speak a language other than English at home. These are predominantly Italian, Chinese languages and Spanish. Cultural sensitivity, tolerance and the celebration of diversity are features of our school and are developed through our student leadership program, arts and language other than English (LOTE) programs.

Indigenous families make up approximately 1.5% of the local population, which is generally reflected within the school community. Indigenous cultures are supported and celebrated through parental involvement, teacher aide programs and class units of work.
