Why choose our school?

Engaging minds, investing in futures.

Strathpine State School students are part of the 21st century world. They are growing towards a future that is increasingly embedded in digital technologies within a context that makes distant locations part of our local community. We align our goals for our students with the Queensland Governments Strategic Plan.

 

Our students come to school to learn - Our obligation is to ensure that all students reach their potential in literacy and numeracy and can actively participate in society

 

 

Community Partnerships:

How our school works with other organisations in our community. This includes transitions between Kindergartens and Prep and between Year 6 and high school. It also includes our associations with other schools and regions, universities, sporting groups and community groups.

 

Information & Communication Technology:

How we communicate with each other – with a variety of media, including technology, and also how we design solutions and share ideas to build on each other’s understandings. This includes hardware, software, staff capability, and applications of technology and infrastructure.

 

Student Support:

How we ensure our students’ individual needs are met and every opportunity possible to develop their potential is provided. This includes both extension and intervention, supporting Students with Disabilities, support programs for children experiences learning difficulties, Individual Curriculum Plans, identifying gifted students and designing appropriate learning challenges. Student support also includes mental health and well-being, Guidance services, behavior interventions and social and emotional programs to build resilience and the implementation of the school’s Responsible Behaviour Plan.

 

Curriculum:

How we deliver every student’s entitlement to the Australian Curriculum, within our school context. We recognise that our learners have developmental learning needs as they mature:

 

-       our Prep – Year 1 learners are “learning to…read, write, ask questions, count and measure…

-       our Year 2 and Year 3 learners are “reading, writing, asking questions, measuring…to learn…

-       our Year 4 – Year 6 students are “using and sharing their learning through reading, writing, responding to questions…”

Pedagogy:

How we teach – the strategies we use to engage and challenge our students. We use the Art and Science of Teaching across the school to design teaching and learning and we support this with The Gradual Release Model for our students.
