Our school

 

Oonoonba State School is a caring and supportive environment for all staff, parents and students. Our goal is to ensure that students develop academically as well as socially, emotionally and physically to be active citizens. Our values, 6 C’s, sets the framework for every day practice and our peer support program enables students to learn skills of how to demonstrate these life skills.

The peer support program, which has been embedded as part of the curriculum since 2003, 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 in the school.

 Parents are encouraged to be involved in every facet of school life and are invited to participate 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.

During 2012 the school celebrated ten years at the current site and invited one of our first school captains to address the community. The reflection which occurred during the ceremony was a real celebration of what Oonoonba State School has achieved from 2002 to 2012.
