It is with great pleasure and a wonderful sense of pride that I welcome you to our school. Since 1999, Grand Avenue State School has fashioned a culture that symbolises and exemplifies excellence in public school education in the Forest Lake area. Today, we offer a truly unique 21ST century learning environment where we want our students to be exceptional learners who are of high character.
Teachers and support staff are firmly focused on ensuring we deliver on our school's vision of “engaging young minds to influence and shape a better world". We want students to feel good about who they are as key members of our school community, build their love of learning and thrive as active participants in learning and achieving.
The experiences we provide through our engaging and connected curriculum will set them up for success across all phases of their lives. Our long-term aim is to ensure that all students thrive and become assessment capable learners, living out our school's C.A.R.I.N.G. values, connecting with each other, aiming for excellence, becoming more resilient and independent, fostering a nurturing environment and possessing a growth mindset. I am confident that all staff and students have the capacity and ability to meet our high expectations, and the demands of this very important work.
We believe that success is not an option…but an expectation and a habit.
We look forward to our school being an integral part of your child's educational experience, as we believe education is a shared community responsibility. Grand Avenue State School recognises the need for genuine partnerships to exist between home and school. Children will always thrive when the school and home are working together as a team, toward common goals. We are committed to building positive partnerships with our school community to provide the best possible outcomes for our students in a supportive, safe and positive school environment.
We trust that your child's education at this school will be a rewarding and meaningful experience and one that is built on a shared commitment to your child learning to be the best that they can be.
