Welcome to Nundah State School

Nundah State School is a delightful school, with a culture of care and quality for our students from prep to year 6.

Nundah State School, one of the oldest schools in Queensland, was established in 1865 on the site it currently occupies. The school features a magnificent, heritage listed, main building constructed in the 1930s. The school occupies a central place in the local community and has provided quality education over the decades for the suburbs of Nundah, Northgate, Wavell Heights and Kalinga.

We have developed a clear vision for Nundah State School with our community. This has 4 elements, including our motto, our statement of beliefs, our values, and our learner protocols. Our Nundah Nine Gifts are our 21st C learner expectations which frame the Australian Curriculum as Learning Intentions (and success criteria) in our classrooms.

Motto: We Wonder at Nundah! 

 

Our Values:  we use these to check the spirit of how learn.

  • Curiosity
  • Connecting
  • Risk- Making
  • Quality
  • Creativity
  • Independence
 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Beliefs:  frame the intentions behind our work.

  •  Given sufficient challenge and support, all students can learn and achieve to higher levels.
  • We have fun when we are learning, and that by making learning enjoyable and providing choices where possible,
  • In affirming and encouraging the best in ourselves and others, and consistently treating everyone with dignity and respect.
  • It is our responsibility to develop the whole person - social, emotional, cognitive, spiritual and physical.
  • Our basic needs drive our choices, and that we can teach others that they are in control of their choices, behaviours and attitudes; and how to make strong choices.
  • Growth and happiness is best found in a school culture of internal control psychology, where intrinsic motivation is harnessed and a growth mindset promoted.

Our Nundah Nine “Gift Tags”:  frame what we are teaching the children, that is,

the learner qualities we focus on developing, which we connect the Australian Curriculum for our students.  These are the “gifts we give one another”.

The best way to really get to know a school is to visit for a tour, so you get the feeling your children will as you walk around and see learning in action. 

I hope you enjoy becoming part of Nundah’s history as much as we enjoy the children and our school.

Cheers,

Ms Deb Cox
