Regents Park State School - Our School

Regents Park State School is situated in the western corridor of Logan City on Emerald Drive, Regents Park.  The student population comes from a diverse range of socio- economic and cultural backgrounds.  It is a co-educational school with about 550 students in year levels Prep to Year 6.  There is a focus on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) to lay foundations for learning together.  A number of students present with a non-English speaking background which necessitates working with our English as a Second Language Teacher on intensive language programs.  Our school also caters for students with Intellectual Impairment (II) and Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) through a Special Education Program that integrates students into their age appropriate mainstream classes.   

We have a whole school focus on continuous improvement through students being “in class, on task and learning” as we implement sequential focussed teaching and learning lessons. Curriculum programs for Years Prep to 6 are developed around the National Curriculum of English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography and Health. Cooperative Teacher Teams plan English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities unit plans with specific work undertaken in all learning areas, each teaching year level identifying a teacher to lead each of the teaching/learning areas. We have a Master Teacher, Head of Curriculum and Key Teachers in the Areas of English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Information Communication Technologies.
 
Our school has developed an Arts program focussing on Music, Dance, Drama, Visual Arts and Media in all Year level,  with Years 1-4 inclusive being taught all these subjects by specialist teachers. All students are invited to participate in the annual talent quest 'Regents got Talent'.
 
Sport and Health is considered an integral and important of all children's development, with a specialist PE teacher teaching all year levels. Each year students participate in Athletics Carnivals and Cross Country. Years 1 & 2 received swimming lessons, Years 3-6 competing at the Annual Swimming Carnival. Years 5 & 6 participate in 2 seasons of inter-school sport. Throughout the year a number of other opportunities arise for students to participate in physical/sporting activities including staff/student competitions, the P&C run Walkathon and other lunch time activities.
 
There is a very active Enhancing Learning Action Team which coordinates curriculum program development.  This group also facilitates data analysis which leads to year level action plans for improvement through proactive year level and intervention programs.  Teacher Aide timetables are primarily focussed on supporting English Blocks to further enhance these programs. In 2015 this support will be extended to Maths Blocks.  Through a variety of measures it has been observed that student achievement has shown marked improvement across the school in 2014.
 
In Years 1 to 6, inclusive, students are placed in English classes which provide Focussed Intensive Teaching (FIT) classes based on their learning needs. Those students requiring most support are placed in a smaller class, they receive small group focussed lessons, supported by their class teacher, FIT teacher, Learning Support Teacher and trained Teacher Aides. FIT classes also cater for those students capable and ready for extension work, these students are also supported and encouraged to further develop their abilities and skills.
 
All members of the school community are encouraged to see themselves as active leaders across many aspects of school organisation.  In accordance with the school’s values and beliefs, a wide range of opportunities is provided for students and staff to develop in many different areas and in a very supportive environment.  Students from Prep to Year 3 are chosen as Class Captain each term.  They perform leadership roles in their classrooms at an appropriate level and meet in a Junior Student Council once per term.  Their ideas are then passed on the formal Student Council.  Students in Years 4 and 5 are voted as Student Councillors for the each term and they represent their classes in the Student Council, Student Leaders in Year 6 are automatically members of the Student Council for the full year.  Our school enjoys strong community support through the Parents and Citizens Association volunteers, classroom volunteers, and the operation of a healthy teaching and learning environment.

Our School Rules are:

  • Safety - @regents we demonstrate safety when we conduct ourselves with care & responsibility
  • Teamwork - @regents we demonstrate teamwork when  we work & play co-operatively
  • Achievement - @regents we demonstrate achievement when we are prepared & willing to participate
  • Respect - @regents we demonstrate respect when we speak & behave in a considerate & well-mannered way

 

This set of rules is aimed at making Regents Park a safe and happy school, in which learning and teaching can occur most effectively by promoting and encouraging appropriate choices in all leaning and play situations. This year we have introduced a Social and Emotional Learning Program – 'You Can Do It'. This is the process of learning how to recognize and manage emotions, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships and handle challenging situations effectively. There are five keys to the program - Organisation, Persistence, Getting Along, Confidence and Resilience. The Year 6 Leadership Program offers students opportunities to participate as School Captains and Vice-Captains and Sports House Captains while Years 4 to 6 students participate in the Student Council. Prep to Year 3 students are nominated for Class Captain each term.

At Regents Park State School, Involvement in your child’s schooling may take many forms. You are invited to participate in the Parents and Citizens Association which meets regularly and supports the school, its activities and programs. You may also have time to become a volunteer around the school – in classrooms, in the canteen, the uniform shop, the Resource Centre, sports involvement and many other areas. At Regents Park State School education is considered a partnership between parents, caregivers, students and teachers.
