Showcasing Quality and Excellence
At Nundah State School we celebrate and showcase student excellence, in academic learning, in social-emotional learning and in effort.
Students of the week awards
Each week one student from each class is nominated for their quality work as 'Student of the week'. This award is presented on our assembly.
One way we acknowledge academic excellence is through our bi-annual excellence awards. These are awarded by the Principal on the basis of report card results each semester, and in the areas of academic achievement, and academic effort.
One of the ways we celebrate student talents and skills at Nundah State
School is through our Showcase. All children are given the opportunity to
be involved in the school’s Showcase
Extra curricular activities
Nundah community greatly values the learning that occurs through extra
curricular activities. Students are encouraged to participate in a number of
engaging activities. Students are offered extra-curricular activities to
enhance their academic, social, creative and cultural capabilities. Nundah
State School students engage in a wide range of extra curricular activities including:
Choirs: Nundah State School has a large number of children that participate in our choirs. We have Junior Choir, Senior Choir and The Nundah Rock Singers. The choirs all meet before or during lunch hours to practice a range of songs. The choirs are given opportunities throughout the year to play at assemblies and other special community and school events.
Writer’s Circle: Writer's Circle is a small group of interested writers in Year 4 and 5. It began as an invited group of students, who had been writing as a hobby and were seeking some feedback on their work. Writers meet at once a week to discuss their thoughts about a piece of writing that has been pre-read. The author of the work discusses the suggestions made by the group. The writers group have also investigated participating in writing competitions and events.
Games Factory: A group of children who enjoy playing board games meet weekly. The children can choose this quiet lunchtime option and play Monopoly, Pick Up Sticks, Hungry Hippos just to name a few. This activity is supported by two classroom teachers.
Sustainability Club: Students from Year 1-6 meet weekly to conduct negotiated projects around issues impacting on our environment including recycling, erosion, packaging, water conservation etc. The students have opportunities throughout the year to present at assemblies and other special community and school events.
The ICAS testing is optional for year 3-6. The children have the option to
participate in Digital Technologies, Science, Writing, Spelling, English and
