Ridge State School, we are focussed on educating the whole child, as part of
our vision of, “Learning together, learning for life”. It’s a vision of teamwork, achievement and
life-long learning. Our compassionate, caring and dedicated staff ensure that
every child feels welcome and supported while
in their “learning zone”. Our focus on developing student success and
wellbeing is evident through our achievement of 100% agreement that, “My child
is getting a good education at this school” in recent parent survey results.
In 2019, we
will continue to relentlessly focus on improving student achievement in the
areas of Reading and Problem Solving. In addition, our teachers are committed
to ensuring that all students are aware of the ‘success criteria’ of assessment
tasks - what they need to do, know and understand to demonstrate their
learning. We know that the key to students’ learning success at our school is acknowledging
that our students need to be ready and well positioned socially and emotionally
to learn. For this reason, our focus is also on developing our students’
understanding of how their brain works as a resource for learning and the role
of mindfulness in centring themselves, so we can move into supporting our
students to develop a “growth mindset”.
Bracken Ridge State School has employed a specialist Arts teacher to
teach our students Visual Arts, Dance, Drama and Media. This complements our
already strong Music program and twilight concerts. Our students also now have
access to a range of extra-curricular activities during lunch times, including
coding, hip hop dance, street art, and supported play options. Our Year 4-6
students have weekly access to intra and inter-sports program, and all students
from Prep to Year 6 attend in-school swimming and Physical Education
We are constantly striving to
embrace new and innovative practices within our curriculum with high
expectations of all students. Our academic programs are of a very high
quality and our enthusiastic and experienced staff are committed to the development
of the potential in every child. Our school recognises the diverse backgrounds
of our students and supports individual needs through our extensive
intervention programs, Special Education program and individualized approaches
to student learning.
Making all of this happen, is a team of high
performing teachers and teacher aides, who are passionate about ensuring that
we provide high quality learning to all students.
