I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to be the principal of Amberley District State School. Being principal of one of the oldest schools in Queensland, and continuing its long and proud commitment to educational excellence, is something that brings me great enjoyment and satisfaction.
LITERATE, NUMERATE, CURIOUS
Young learners today continue to share much in common with learners from the past in a world of citizenship and employment that is changing more quickly than ever. For students to thrive now and in the future they will need highly developed literacy and numeracy, and they will need curiosity. It is curiosity that drives learning and helps students to be great learners today and to adapt to change and continue learning throughout their lives.
At our school we are focused on cultivating curiosity and growing learners abilities to be courageous, inquirers, collaborators, communicators, thinkers and self-managers.
These skill sets are what we call our learning assets and they are what create powerful learners who are successful in their learning today and into the future. Our aim is that all learners bounce into school eager to learn, feel they belong and have people who believe in them and that each day they are growing their learning assets. We are an inclusive community and we are lucky to have both an expert staff and a modern and well resourced campus that supports the educational needs of all students and assists us as a community to deliver an education of the highest possible standard. Our staff believe that if our school is to prepare students for the challenges of their future, they each must also continue to learn and strive to be the best they can be.
A large number of our families have a long association with Amberley District and over the last few years many new families have joined our school in its new location. We have a vibrant P&C association that supports learning at our school and I encourage you to contribute your energy and ideas to enhance our learning community.
I look forward to working in partnership with you.
