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.
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

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.
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.

same: your participation in your child’s education is the key to ensuring
that together we can ensure great things happen for your child.
staff are looking forward to working with you to achieve success for your
