Victoria Point State School is situated in the Redland's District on the traditional lands of the Noonuccal people, 38 km south-east of Brisbane on the beautiful shores of Moreton Bay. Our school was opened in 1916, with our oldest classroom block being built in 1923. Our students come from a large area including Victoria Point, Coochiemudlo Island, Redland Bay and Thornlands. The student population is predominantly Anglo-Australian. Approximately 5% of our students identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and a further 8% of our students have a cultural background other than Anglo-Australian.
At Victoria Point State School we believe:
- that our best today can be improved upon tomorrow.
- that everyone can learn and our goal is to maximize that learning.
- that we can make a positive difference in the lives of our students, their families, and our community.
- that positive relationships are the foundation of effective teaching.
- that student learning is maximized when parents and teachers work together.
Through our 'You Can Do It Program' we teach and model the personal attributes of confidence, persistence, resilience, organisation, and getting along. These qualities underpin our relationships within the school. Our school also has some of the most modern and up-to-date resources, technologies and teaching equipment available. Every student has access to these resources and to the information available through the Internet.
Our learning programs cater to the needs of every student no matter what their learning requirements. We have programs to assist students with significant learning disabilities and difficulties through our Special Education Program and our Learning Support Program. We have programs to inspire our brightest students and challenge them to produce their best work. We have programs focussing on reading, writing and maths designed to improve the achievement of all students across all year levels. We believe that every student can learn and we have designed learning programs and use teaching strategies that will maximise this learning.
Our Parents' and Citizens' Association provide outstanding support to our school with specific financial support for our technology program, our literacy program, grounds beautification and landscaping, and our library resources. Our P&C meet on the second Wednesday of each month at the school and all interested members of the community are welcome to attend.
