Our school caters for students from the Pre-Preparatory Year to Year 6. We have a student enrolment of approximately 800. The school also offers a high standard of 'before and after school hours' care and vacation care.
The quality reputation our school enjoys has been achieved through the hard work and diligence of our staff members, both in the classrooms and administration office. Based on the belief that all students can learn, the staff of Ashmore State School accepts the responsibility to teach all students, regardless of differences, the fundamental skills required for success in the 21 century.
We know that teachers and their teaching practice have the greatest potential to influence student achievement. Therefore our teachers are committed to engagement in professional development to continually increase their knowledge base. They develop coherent and rigorous planning of teaching and learning experiences aligned to the Department of Education and Training Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Framework (QCARF) coupled with a focus on English, Math and Science units based on the newly developed National Curriculum framework.
We set high expectations for every student’s progress and ambitious targets for improving classroom performances. We implement researched based effective teaching strategies to promote successful and independent learners. Of great importance to us is the rigorous examination of data to monitor the effect of teaching strategies and to provide timely feedback to students that clarify actions they need to take to progress their learning.
Inside and outside the classroom, you will discover that rigorous academics, challenging athletics and an inspiring performing arts program are more than just lessons. They are experiences developed by dedicated teachers who believe in developing the whole child mentally, physically, emotionally, and culturally.
