Goodwood State School

Principal’s Welcome

The children, families and staff are proud of Goodwood State School and believe it to be a progressive and outstanding school. Staff are committed to providing the best support and learning environment for every child. We strive passionately to help every child to excel and achieve her/his potential. We firmly believe in establishing a solid foundation of literacy and numeracy to promote a successful education in the future.

Hand in hand with the fundamentals, we add interest to our lessons with new educational technologies, including Interactive whiteboards and a large bank of networked computers. Having no room for complacency, our staff are always seeking ways to improve our skills and the delivery of service to our children.

We have worked at developing a close and strong bond between the school and our families. Our school is an integral part of the community and we regard education as a three way process involving teacher, parent and child. A constructive and positive partnership between parents and teachers is important. We need to work together and to support each other to maximise our children’s development and learning.

To ensure that your child gains benefit from the opportunities offered at our school, I ask you to consider carefully the following:

  • Think of Goodwood State School as your school and take pride in your association with the school community

  • Maintain regular contact with your school through involvement in school activities 

  • Work in partnership with the school to foster the academic, social, emotional and physical development of your child. 


I hope that you will have a long, happy and rewarding association with Goodwood State School.  I look forward to working with you in developing a productive and supportive partnership to support our children.

Kind Regards,

Steve Coleman
Principal
