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
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
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.
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.
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…”
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.
