Statement of purpose
The school community believes that:
The school is a place of high quality learning.
The school equips students with knowledge and skills to meet the needs of a changing society.
The school operates as a caring environment and recognises the worth of every member.
Every student has the opportunity to participate in the learning process that recognises their individual needs and abilities in an atmosphere that encourages them to develop to their best potential.
High personal standards, including honesty and working to the best of one’s ability are essential.
Each person contributes to the achievements of common and individual goals.
The provision of an excellent schooling experience for students in the twenty first century requires a flexible approach. Today’s society is characterised by rapid economic change, cultural diversity, pervasive growth in information and communication technology and an increasingly competitive labour market.
Our school curriculum has been planned taking account of these changes, and incorporates the following principles:
Teaching strategies and curriculum should focus on the maturity levels of students. The learning and development needs of junior school students (year 8 and 9) are different to those of senior school students (years 10, 11 and 12).
Students exit Kingaroy State High School with a secondary education that prepares them for further education and training or full-time employment.
A whole school approach to explicit teaching, as well as literacy, numeracy and information and communication for all students.
Computers and internet
Kingaroy State High School has a rich array of digital and technological resources for students to use and explore in their learning.
Data projectors and/or interactive smart boards are present in almost every room, year 10, 11 and 12 students take part in Bring Your Own Device program, and for the younger grades there are over 200 computers in labs and laptop trolleys to enable them to access a host of learning experiences and tools.
Industry level software is deployed across the school, including Autocad, Photoshop and Dreamweaver to mention but a few.
The school internet is connected into the fibre national broadband network (NBN), delivering high speed internet to our school and making many online learning experiences possible.
