The school prides itself on being a friendly and happy place which aims to maximise the learning potential of each child. This prospectus contains information about the school which is important to new families or prospective parents of the school. It contains many of the school policies and procedures which we hope you will find useful.
Ormeau State School has been on this site in Mirambeena Drive since 1986. In this time, the enrolment has grown quite rapidly from one hundred and three children to over 880 in 2010. The school delivers quality educational programs to all our students. Our teachers are always happy to discuss your child’s progress and we encourage you to meet with your child’s teacher from time to time throughout the year.
To a large degree the success of this school mirrors the great support given by parents and the community. This community is a young, enthusiastic and caring one. We’re sure your family will soon feel a comfortable part of it. We urge you to become an active member of our school community by supporting school activities and attending Parents and Citizens meetings when you are able. Please feel free to contact us for more information about how you can get involved.
Our school has a three year plan which we call our School Strategic Plan. Copies of this plan and our Annual Operational Plans are available for your perusal from the office. If you are interested in reading these or contributing to our future plans, please make contact with us. The school has had a School Council in operation since June 1998. This council has three parent representatives who are there to represent parents’ views in the strategic direction of the school. Should you wish to contact these representatives, please contact our school office.
We 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 Ormeau. We would like to welcome you and your children to our school and are sure you will enjoy the many and varied educational experiences it offers. If we can be of assistance, at any time, please contact the school to make an appointment and we will be more than happy to oblige.
