Principal’s welcome

Welcome to our website where you will gain valuable insight into our school. Situated on the north side of Brisbane, Boondall State School is close to public transport. 

At Boondall State School our motto, "Success by Work", underpins everything we do – from the classroom to the sporting fields to playing musical instruments. Our enthusiastic and caring teachers and support staff guide our students to grow academically, socially and emotionally and experience success in all that they encounter.

With a focus on gaining literacy and numeracy skills, our teachers develop programs which engage our students. Differentiation strategies are firmly embedded in classroom pedagogy ensuring that we support and cater for each child’s individual needs.

Our specialist teachers - Physical Education (PE) Music, Library, Dance, Drama,  Technology and German, have developed unique programs for our students from Prep to Year 6. Our PE program includes a comprehensive swimming program with lessons taken in our school pool. Our magnificent ovals provide an excellent environment for games and sport. Our German program commences in Prep and includes our students’ participation in the International competition - "Language Perfect World Championship", which our school came first place (2016).

Our Music program is complemented by an Instrumental Music program. Our Technology program focusses on the digital aspects of Technology and our Dance and Drama Teacher offers the students access to a range of  experiences within The Arts curriculum. Our Library specialist works closely with classroom teachers to enhance their literacy programs.

Our school provides a whole school reading program where a Literacy Coach and trained Teacher Aides are scheduled to work alongside the classroom teacher at least three times a week. This program allows us to cater to individual student needs.

The school also offers identified students in all year levels the opportunity to participate in a before school extensive literacy intervention/extension reading program.

The school prides itself on its commitment to fostering a culture of cooperation and acceptance where students learn about and appreciate diverse beliefs and influences. It is the centre of an active and supportive community who are proud of the school's diversity and inclusive culture. Many of our student’s parents attended Boondall State School which is testimony to this pride.

We provide a high quality education in a supportive and caring environment where all students are supported to achieve academically.Please contact us if you would like to learn more about our school.
