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 700 students in year levels Prep to Year 6. 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 disabilities.
We have a whole school focus on continuous
improvement through students being 'in class, on task and learning' as we
implement sequential focused teaching and learning lessons. Curriculum programs
for Years Prep to 6 are developed around the Australian 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 Two Deputy Principals, Two Heads of Department (Curriculum) and an Inclusive Support Team that ensure teacher knowledge and application of the Learning Areas of English, Mathematics,
Science, Humanities and Information Communication Technologies.
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 and 2 received swimming lessons, Years 3-6
competing at the Annual Swimming Carnival. Years 5 and 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
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. We elect School Captains and Vice Captains to lead our Student Leadership body. Sports House and Vice Captains, Music Captains and ICT Captains all form a vital part of our Student Leadership Team. 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.
