Our School

Goodna State School is underpinned by a very definitive moral purpose, one which guides the teaching and learning experiences within our school environment. Each and every member of our school community believes that each and every child can learn and achieve - consequently, our goals and school initiatives embody this core principle.

Goodna State School’s​​​​ current initiatives and associated goals:

  • To identify, address and monitor the learning needs of each and every child.
  • To aspire to excellence in all we do.
  • To engage parents meaningfully in the school lives of their children.
  • To improve literacy and numeracy achievement and results, with an emphasis on explicit teaching and differentiation of the curriculum (personalised learning approaches).
  • To use e-learning to enhance parent/school relationships and to give parents, students and teachers access to teaching and learning beyond traditional classroom walls.
  • To implement a whole school focus on Science and associated higher order thinking strategies.
  • To develop even stronger teacher/student relationships, thereby improving student attendance/engagement.
  • To provide opportunities/support for all staff to excel.
  • To build meaningful school/community partnerships.
  • To raise the image of the school within the local and wider communities.
