Southport State School was established in 1880 and boasts a proud heritage. The original school site was on the corner of Lawson and Scarborough Streets Southport. Originally our P&C were very guarded in moving from this site to its present location in Queen Street. However, we all understood at the time that the move to the old Gold Coast trotting track was going to provide more playing space for children and in 1991 our new school was occupied and classes were under-way.
The school delivers a quality educational program to all our students with a particular emphasis on essential learning. Our teachers are very committed professionals, always happy to discuss your child’s progress. I encourage you to make contact with your child’s teacher as frequently as possible. To a large degree the success of this school mirrors the great support given by parents and the community. I’m sure your family will soon feel comfortable as part of this community. Please support school, P&C meetings, activities and community functions as you are able.
I bring your attention to our school’s mission statement and values and beliefs on the following pages and ask your support to help us maintain our commitment to students at Southport State School. I would like to welcome you and your children to our school and am sure you will enjoy the many and varied educational experiences it offers.
