Our excellent staff
Mudgeeraba State School has a very experienced and passionate staff. Throughout each year there is strong evidence of our staff continually 'going the extra mile' for our students.
Our classroom teachers are ably supported by a large number of specialist teachers who ensure our school is able to offer a broad spectrum of curriculum programs and cater for the individual needs of all students.
Specialist staff members include teachers who have expertise in particular curriculum areas. These include health and physical education, Japanese, science, technology, drama, visual arts, music and dance. Through their expertise in their specialist areas these teachers provide programs which strongly enhance the learning of all students.
Our focussed teaching team includes special education teachers, support teachers – learning difficulties, guidance officer, speech/language pathologist and a school chaplain. This team supports classroom teachers in developing students socially, emotionally and academically. Collaboratively collected data, program design and delivery ensure that differentiated learning opportunities are available for all students.
Our principal, deputy principals, head of differentiation (special education services) and head of curriculum ably lead teams of teachers to ensure that our curriculum offerings are at the cutting-edge, our classrooms are focussed on learning and there is consistency of practice across our school.
Our leadership team and teaching staff are well supported by our business services manager, numerous teacher aides, our grounds staff, cleaning staff and our wonderful office staff.
Parents as partners
It is our belief that one of the greatest gifts a parent can give a child is to be a strong and involved partner in their child's education. To this end we are very keen for parents to become involved in the life of the school. Parents are welcomed to work in the classrooms, attend class excursions, coach sporting teams, raise funds, assist the P&C, volunteer in the tuckshop, attend school assemblies, provide feedback to the principal and attend parent education programs throughout the year.

We love to sing our school song loud and lively!
