Hello, my name is Scott Medford and it is my honour and privilege to be the principal of Carole Park State School.
Our school is blessed with a diversity of cultures that enriches our school community. At Carole Park State School we work tirelessly to create an inclusive, safe and supportive learning environment.
At Carole Park State School, we focus on holistically developing students. Our school programs are designed to develop student literacy, numeracy, thinking skills and values so they are equipped to be active citizens in the ever changing 21st century society.
At Carole Park State School, we see ourselves as a community of learners. We are continually working with professional researchers and the Department of Education, Queensland to establish the highest quality of teaching. Our school in recent years has had the pleasure of working collaboratively with other schools in the Ipswich, Springfield and the Gold Coast areas to further progress our teaching practices and deliver quality education for our students.
Our community, staff and students take pride in who we are, and what we are learning. We are proud to say that our school has been recognised for its work in the last five years. We have hosted education tours for both local and international schools.
Our school has high expectations for all members of our community to engage in positive communications and be active participants in your child's learning.
The expectations at Carole Park State School are:
- Be Safe
- Be Respectful
- Be a Learner
These expectations are explicitly taught in class each day. These expectations are supported by the 5 Values that our school community aspire our students to understand and demonstrate as citizens.
The 5 values are:
We welcome parent involvement in the school. Please feel encouraged to become closely involved with your child's education. Your support is integral to us as we work as a team to support every student to be the best that they can be.
I look forward to working with our dynamic and evolving school community.
