Principal’s welcome


Moorooka State School is a wonderful school where great things happen each and every day.  Everywhere you look around our school you will see smiling faces and feel the joy of our students as they learn and grow.  Our children are supported to thrive at Moorooka State School and we know that you will be so pleased that your children are part of this community.

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, we feel that it is even more important that our students are experiencing growth in their overall teaching and learning process. Our students are committed and enthusiastic learners who live and learn by the values of collaboration, curiosity, resilience and growth through challenge.  They are outstanding! When you visit our school you will see first-hand how the variety of learning environments we have enables our staff to ensure students are actively involved in their learning. 

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

Staff and students have access to a range of interactive and digital devices to support learning in a globally interactive world.  Our school is well equipped with interactive TVs, laptops for students, desktops in classrooms and iPads for use in classrooms.  Our students and staff access these at different times and in different ways to support the learning needs of our students. 

We implement learning programs using the Australian Curriculum, with our current school priorities focused on improving the literacy of every student through high quality explicit instruction.  While our focus is on teaching and learning, we continue to place our students’ mental health and wellbeing at 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 for all of our students. 

The highlight of my day is my interactions with staff, students and families.  I am constantly impressed with the quality of teaching, the excitement and enthusiasm of our students while they are learning and the positivity of our families who support our school, our staff and our students. I encourage our families to participate as much as possible with their child’s education.  This could be through volunteering, sharing highlights of learning with other families, helping out in the tuckshop, joining the P & C or simply by working closely with classroom teachers to meet the needs of their children.  It is our teamwork as a school community that really ensures we can make great things happen for all of our children.

The common thing I hear staff and parents say about our school is ‘we have a wonderful community that work well together’ and ‘this school is a great school that cares and supports our children’.
