Our school


Our school is a unique and caring institution pursuing the goal of lifelong learning. In addition to the key learning areas, we learn about teamwork and cooperation, responsibilities and shared rules, and enjoying each other’s company. We work together to make our school a vibrant, productive and safe place to grow.

Pumicestone State School invites you to become part of our school community working in partnership with us to provide the very best education. Our school opens in 2017 as an Independent Public School.  Students at our school will be privileged to be educated in a modern facility ensuring they have what they need to be successful 21st century learners. Our facilities are state of the art, including a science lab, music practice room, green room, ensuring our students are active and hands-on with their learning.

As the foundation Principal, I look forward to working with staff, students and community to establish a school renowned for achieving a reputation that:

  • We nurture
  • We challenge
  • We care

Our school will be committed to achieving in the core priorities of:

  • Attendance
  • Achievement - Literacy, Numeracy, English, Maths and Science
  • Enrolment - maintaining and improving our market share
  • High standards of behaviour
  • Public perception.

Building and maintaining relationships between the staff, students, parents and wider community will play a vital role in the student success and will develop a strong sense of belonging for us all. We aim to foster a parent community that places a high value upon education. We want parents to be committed to preparing their children for a successful start to schooling, to be supportive and actively involved throughout the entire school journey.

I know parents want the best for their children, to come to school and be happy and safe in a supportive learning environment. Building strong partnerships with parents and community to provide a respectful, rich learning community is essential to me, and I look forward to working with you around this agenda.

We pride ourselves on the tone of our school and are confident you will notice our environment of high expectations across academic, social and behavioural aspects. I encourage all parents and carers to develop a close relationship with teachers at school early every school year. The partnership formed will serve to provide support for families and optimise opportunities for children to enjoy school and learn.
