As Principal, I encourage all parents to be involved in your child’s education.
Education needs to be highly valued as it gives everyone the opportunity to improve themselves and their future prospects. Education is a great leveller, despite economic circumstance, each student in a public school is provided with the opportunity to engage with quality education. Staff at Kingsthorpe State School rightly pride themselves in the wide variety of achievements and opportunities that ex- students have been engaged in.
At Kingsthorpe State School, children have the right to receive an education in a safe and respectful learning environment. General student behaviour and attitudes at this school are of a very high standard. If any bullying issues are reported the school staff is pro-active in dealing with the situation. Behaviour expectations are taught and acknowledged using the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) philosophy. For a small school, Kingsthorpe has a proportionally high number of children who go onto achieving student leadership positions in their chosen High School. This is a credit to both the families who attend and the staff who work here. Our Responsible Behaviour Plan outlines school expectations of behaviour in more detail.
All Kingsthorpe State School staff implements the Australian Curriculum using the Queensland curriculum support documents, C2C. Staff aim to provide quality, engaging learning experiences that meet individual needs in addition to building a positive rapport with all children. The teachers here are consistently impressive in their dedication and ability to provide and promote an excellent learning environment. We are a progressive, busy and vibrant school.
Teachers and teacher aides engage in professional development opportunities on a regular basis. The capacity of the staff is built through collegial engagement both at the school and cluster level, and a collaborative team approach is fostered to ensure consistency of curriculum delivery.
We look forward to meeting with you for a school tour of our exceptional educational facility
