Mission and values

Learning is a life-long undertaking which allows children and adults to make positive contributions to society. As an inclusive learning community, Burpengary State School, offers an educational program founded on the belief that all children have the ability to learn. Our learning community engages all stakeholders working together in the best interest of each student. High expectations, complemented by a deep knowledge of each student, inform teachers’ capacity to meet individual learning goals. We provide differentiated learning opportunities and experiences catering for the diverse range of learners within our school community.

At Burpengary State School we believe:

  • that all children have the ability to learn
  • that learning is a life-long undertaking, both formal and informal, which allows children and adults to contribute to society
  • that courtesy, tolerance and respect are fundamental to the learning partnership

that the work ethic is fostered by high expectation within the school/home learning partnership.

Therefore we value:

  • Learning
  • Respect
  • Commitment
  • Care and compassion

At Burpengary State School our mission is evidenced by:

  • A professional learning community of highly effective teachers, who set high expectations, have deep curriculum and pedagogical knowledge and implement quality student-centred learning experiences focused on success for all students.
  • High levels of student engagement through differentiated, intellectually challenging learning experiences targeting the development of language, literacy and numeracy skills and a diverse range of extra and co-curricular experiences for the development of the ‘whole’ child
  • The provision of safe and supportive learning environments
  • A school culture that values diversity and inclusion.

Our goal is for Burpengary students to:
