Our school

Oonoonba State School is a caring and supportive environment for all staff, parents and students.  We understand that for our students to be successful we need to be a successful staff, successful community and successful school.

Our belief is that 'our students are worth whatever it takes'. (Rogers)

Our diverse community consists of 4% students with a disability, 7% Indigenous students, 14% Students from Defence families.

All students are provided with differentiated learning to meet their needs academically, socially, emotionally, and physically so that they will be successful.

Our Positive Behaviour for Learning Expectations, Safe, Respectful, Resilient, Successful, set the framework for every day practice.

The peer support program is embedded as part of the curriculum and assists students to learn important skills to communicate and participate in a safe environment while working and developing relationships with students across the school from prep to year 6. By forming buddies with older students across the school, the younger students are less likely to feel threatened by the older students. Students love to meet their buddies in the common area of the school.

Parents are encouraged to be involved in every facet of school life and are invited to participate in Positive Partnership Meetings twice yearly where they set goals with the teacher and their child. They are also welcome to assist in a range of classroom activities including curriculum activities, end of unit celebrations of the learning, and excursions, P & C tuckshop and other fundraising activities, weekly parades, homework interaction, education sessions, music and dance presentations.

We are an Independent Public School.
