Principal’s welcome

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​There are so many great things that happen at Moorooka State School that I consider it to be an honour to be the principal. Every day in our school is a joy and I know you will also be delighted in sending your children here.


Moorooka State School offers your children a well-balanced curriculum. We have developed literacy and numeracy programs which enrich the learning outcomes of all our students. While our NAPLAN results have continued to strengthen, what's more important is the growth our students experience in the overall teaching and learning process: they are outstanding! When you visit our school you will see first-hand how the variety of learning environments we have allow staff to ensure students are actively involved in their learning. 

We have welcoming classrooms, a huge hall including music and instrumental room, a computer lab, library, visual arts room, several play areas, and extensive outdoor learning areas. 

Staff and students have access to interactive TVs in every classroom around the school. We have in excess over 200 Apple iPad devices accessible by staff and students in our school, which students’ access for different periods of time to support their learning.

We are implementing the Australia Curriculum, with our current school priorities being reading, while continuing to always place students mental health and wellbeing and the forefront of everything we do. We have high expectations of student behaviour and school uniform, which creates a strong sense of belonging, school pride and a safe learning environment. 

There is nothing I enjoy more than my daily interaction with staff and students. The office staff often tell me I am hard to find: it's usually because I am out and about co-teaching with my colleagues in the classroom, chatting with parents who have dropped in, or enjoying a story or activity with a child in the classroom. Can I encourage you to do the same: your participation in your child’s education is the key to ensuring that together we can ensure great things happen for your child.

Our staff are looking forward to working with you to achieve success for your children
