Our school

 

While Stanwell State School has the feel of a small school, we have the benefits of a larger school, with music, physical education (PE) and Languages other than English (LOTE) being delivered to the school by specialist teachers. We have a school chaplain, and religious education lessons are provided by a volunteer.

The Australian Curriculum is implemented through a variety of teaching strategies to match students preferred learning styles and the subject areas. Each reporting period Semester 1 and Semester 2 there is a formalised One School written reports. Parent interviews are conducted as required. With a student to computer ratio of approximately 1:1, there is ample opportunity for students to develop technology skills. Students participate in inter-school sporting events on Friday afternoons except in Term 1 as we have our Learn to Swim program of 10 lessons and Swim fun day. We have transition programs with local high schools.
Stanwell State School is part of the Stanwell community. We have close ties with the Stanwell power station, and Aurizon at the Stanwell station, we have volunteers assist at the school with reading and for transport and our Parents & Citizens’ Association (P&C) is very active. Within our cluster of schools we have many opportunities to meet and have sporting events our educational programs,  and teachers attend moderation within the cluster.  A Wellbeing camp of 3 full days and nights is conducted in Term 4, with all students invited and some cluster schools join us. This is locally or at school. Senior class attends a Canberra trip periodically our next one is October 2019.
