Welcome to Ferny Grove State School. I feel privileged to be the Principal of this amazing place of learning. Ferny Grove is a school community with a very big heart.
Our school offers your family a safe, supportive and rich learning environment underpinned by our core values of:
- Care and Compassion
Our staff and community are
focussed on creating a safe and supportive learning environment where every child thrives.
Our community has high expectations for and a commitment to learning with just the right amount of challenge for all. The explicit teaching of our Learning Super Powers supports our students to develop the skills and knowledge to be life long learners.
We design learning experiences that build on learner strengths, creating new knowledge using real life inquiries and encouraging our students to be active contributors to the world around them. All learning is aligned to the Australian Curriculum and made locally relevant for our students. We use innovative teaching practices, digital technologies, productive partnerships within and beyond our school and a range of flexible learning environments to engage our students in meaningful learning. Our classroom learning programs are enriched through our Arts, Languages, HPE and STEM programs.
Our goal is for every Ferny Grove student to develop the skills and capabilities to become responsible contributors to our local and global community.
As Principal, I am deeply passionate and committed to providing a learning environment that promotes curiosity and a love of learning that is deeply connected to our community and the world around us. I foster strong partnerships with our parents and carers as co-educators of our students and encourage their active participation in all aspects of school life.
I look forward to seeing you in our school.
