Redbank Plains State School is the home of the Panther. Our school mascot who espouses the key message to our students: "I am safe, I am respectful, I am a learner." The Panther is also a reader, a learner who acknowledges that reading truly is the key to success.
Quality education is allowed to occur in an environment where behaviours are positive and a mutual level of respect exists between students, staff and community. A Positives Behaviours for Learning (PBL) framework operates within our school and aims to support children in making sensible choices allowing both themselves and others to learn.
Parents, carers and family members are encouraged to engage with our children on their reading journey. Every child is different and every child learns at a different rate and in different ways. The home life that supports a child’s reading journey is one that allows even greater success. I urge all families to please read with their children, to know what their child needs to do to improve and to communicate with the classroom teacher and school when support is needed at home. It truly does take a community to raise and support a child.
As Principal of Redbank Plains State School I am excited at the prospect of ongoing enhancements to our school in terms of school grounds and facilities, consistency of practice in terms of world class teaching and learning and most importantly, improved learning outcomes in the key areas of literacy and numeracy.
As the 2016 year draws to a close, one should expect to see a program of renewal and upgrading to our school facilities. Whilst we acknowledge that any development causes some level of disruption, we also know the end outcome is worth the short term inconvenience. I wish to acknowledge the support being offered to our school by both the Metropolitan Region Facility Services team, and also the Department of Education.
I am looking forward to my career at Redbank Plains and look forward to meeting with positive and engaged members of the school community.
Yours in Education,
