Our school is set in an idealic environment where we live and learn with the expectation that everyone in our school is safe, respectful and responsible.
The curriculum delivered at Nagoorin State School is based on the Australian Curriculum, delivered through Education Queensland's C2C units in Maths, English, Science, and Geography. Other Essential Learnings (Queensland Curriculum) include Health and Physical Education, The Arts and Technology, all of which are reported on at the end of each semester.
We are very proud to be a School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) School and our expectation that everyone in the school community will be safe, respectful and responsible to clearly evident in our environment and by our actions. We have a very well established positive reward and consequence system. Our school has access to a Guidance Officer, Behaviour Support Team and a speech therapist. We also access the Dental Van yearly and a variety of other community based groups.
We have a very active P&C at Nagoorin State School. School discos, the Annual Fun Runs, free dress days, Green Days, Halloween Discos where the entire Valley is invited, movie nights, tuckshop and many other activities are part of our school culture. I would encourage you to come along to meetings, which are held at 7:00pm on the second Tuesday of each month. If meetings aren't your thing, there are many other ways to volunteer. We have a Green Team, a Nagoorin State School Facebook page to help communicate about what's coming up, tuckshop and reading volunteers are always welcome. Funds raised go to directly supporting our students' learning and improving our facilities.
We communicate with members of our school community in many ways: a fortnightly newsletter, ca lass newsletter each term that is written by the students, a school Facebook page, the school website and email, and you are welcome to make an appointment to meet with myself when the need arises.
I'm sure that you will enjoy your time at Nagoorin State School. It is a wonderful school, with dedicated and caring team, a rigorous curriculum, high expectations for all and supportive environment.
