The Department of Education, Training and the Arts provides every Queenslander with the opportunity to engage in quality learning experiences, achieve recognised qualifications and enjoy Queensland’s rich arts and cultural environment throughout their lives.
My staff and I are committed to these goals and we are proud to be part of a strong public education system.
At Bucasia State School we take pride in the tradition and reputation of the school for pursuing the highest standards in behaviour of the students and in the academic program, the sporting and music program.
Students are proud to wear their school uniform which is well recognised in the community and provides children with a sense of belonging.
Our school motto Living Together, Learning Together plays an important part in fostering the well-being and personal development of each student as we work alongside our parents to prepare our youth for the challenges of the future.
Indeed we all look forward with excitement to creating futures together with parents and the school community.
As Principal of Bucasia State School, this year we will continue working with leading educator John Fleming on 'Explicit Teaching'. This has enormous benefits for our students, teachers and parents as we grow together as a learning community. So, our predominately good student learning results will be even more impressive!
Our teachers are focussing on improving student learning in regard to numeracy and writing, where we intend all students should be achieving well above the national minimum standards over 50 % of our students should be receiving an A or B for English and mathematics.
This means that professional development, directed and explicit teaching will be targeted at these areas as particular needs of the students in the school. Other curriculum areas will not be disadvantaged by this.
Our school continues to experience growth. This year we commenced the school year with 17 classroom teachers. We are enrolment managed, so please check our boundaries and call the school if you have any questions.
