Principal's welcome

Welcome to Deebing Heights State School!
As the foundation Principal, I look forward to working with staff, students and community to establish a school renowned for achieving our vision of:
 
Excellence in Teaching;
Excellence in Learning; and
Excellence in Partnerships
 
Our school opened in 2016 with modern facilities and furniture, but at the heart of what we do, are old fashioned values:
 
Safety (safe, supportive, inclusive, disciplined);
Respect (collaborative and supportive relationships);
Responsibility (leadership and accountability);
Learning (high quality, high equity, high improvement, and lifelong)
 
Our school is committed to achieving in the core priorities of:
 
Attendance;
Achievement (literacy, numeracy, English, Maths and Science);
Enrolment (maintaining and improving our market share);
High standards of behaviour; and
Public perception.
 
The following shared beliefs and understandings support our school to achieve our vision, enact our values and deliver performance outcomes in our core priority areas:
 
All students can achieve high standards, given the right support at the right time;
All teachers can teach to high standards, given the right assistance;
Excellence is achieved through collaboration, not isolation.
 
Our school is driven by a performance and development culture of systems and processes that are:
 
Precise (regular analysis and discussion of data);
Personalised (differentiated teaching and learning for students and differentiated support for staff);
and involve:
Professional Learning (developing an expert teaching team).
 
Once again, I look forward to working with staff, students and community to achieve the best for our students!
