Principal’s welcome

It is with pleasure that I welcome you and your family to the 2017 school year at Coomera State School. Coomera State School has provided the longest continuous schooling in the Coomera region dating back to 1873. Due to our history and our central location in Coomera/Upper Coomera, we claim and aim to be the Number One School of Choice in the northern Gold Coast.
 
Our clear focus and purpose is to provide exceptional learning for your child every day at school. We aim to achieve this in a safe, caring and supportive environment. Whilst we have long and established traditions, we certainly do not live in the past. This school has many recently upgraded classrooms, and has many new classrooms, a new resource centre, multi-purpose hall, science and technology centres. Every classroom has a data projector for class use and we are fully air-conditioned throughout all class areas.
 
Many parents come to Coomera for the quality of our prep educational program to provide young children with a head start in education. We have a double unit kindergarten centre established within the school grounds to cater for pre-prep children. The kindergarten is operated by C&K.
 
Coomera State School has achieved multiple award recognition for our past Film Festivals, environmental education programs and special intervention programs. We also lead the way in the use of electronic white boards and the use of ICT in the classrooms.
 
For many, we are known as the little country school next to Dreamworld. That is still very much true except that we now have over 800 students. Every day, we are focussed upon building on the long traditions, maintaining standards and working towards our aspirational goals for your children.
 
We look forward to working in partnership with you to achieve this.
