Mitchelton State School is a leading Independent Public
School on the north side of Brisbane, with an outstanding 100-year
historical commitment to educating students. As we celebrate our 100 year anniversary in 2016 we bring
together staff, students, parents and community members who have contributed to
the fabric of Mitchelton State School over the last century.
I trust that within these pages, you will discover the essence of
Mitchelton State School’s education and its capacity to provide your children
with the best preparation for their future.
A commitment to developing lifelong learners is at the heart of our
purpose at Mitchelton State School. Each child is encouraged and
supported to discover and fulfil their unique potential within an academic
program that aims to develop a broad knowledge base, higher order thinking
skills and dispositions that promote intelligent behavior. We have a staff of
quality teachers and support staff who are committed to providing quality programs
with a strong and consistent focus on
student improvement especially in literacy and numeracy. The school has won
numerous award in Science in recent years.
Our academic curriculum is complemented by a broad educational offering
of cultural, sporting, personal development and service programs which the
students are encouraged to explore widely. These pursuits are considered an
equally important element of their overall growth, learning and socialisation,
in addition to contributing to the many happy and enjoyable store of school
memories we hope they will gather during their time at Mitchelton. As educators
and lifelong learners ourselves, we aspire to a learning culture that is never
complacent. We constantly review and develop our programs, practices and
facilities, seeking that optimal blend of tradition and innovation.
Our school is supportive by an active and engaged Parent and Citizens group and is integral in providing support and
fostering our strong community
participation in the school. Research shows that there is a strong
correlation between involvement of parents and student success. The school
encourages you to be an active participant in your child’s learning.
